    12. Improve synthetic retinal OCT images with present of pathologies and textural information

      Improve synthetic retinal OCT images with present of pathologies and textural information
      The lack of noise free Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) images makes it challenging to quantitatively evaluate performance of image processing methods such as denoising methods. The synthetic noise free OCT images are needed to evaluate performance of image processing methods. The current synthetic methods fail to generate synthetic images that represent real OCT images with present of pathologies. They cannot correctly imitate real OCT data due to a tendency to ...

    13. Geodesic denoising for optical coherence tomography images

      Geodesic denoising for optical coherence tomography images
      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an optical signal acquisition method capturing micrometer resolution, cross-sectional three-dimensional images. OCT images are used widely in ophthalmology to diagnose and monitor retinal diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and Glaucoma. While OCT allows the visualization of retinal structures such as vessels and retinal layers, image quality and contrast is reduced by speckle noise, obfuscating small, low intensity structures and structural boundaries. Existing denoising ...
