Biomedical Image Analysis

Research activities:

Image processing and analysis in ophthalmology

  • Corneal nerve images from confocal microscopy: segmentation of nerve structures, estimation of clinical parameters, such as tortuosity, nerve density, etc. Composition of several images into large mosaic images.
  • Corneal epithelium images from confocal and specular microscopy: segmentation of cell contours, estimation of clinical parameters cell density, pleomorphism, polymegethism.
  • Retinal images from fundus camera: composition of several images into large mosaic images; segmentation of vessel structures, estimation of clinical parameters, such as vessel caliber, tortuosity, Gunn and Salus sign, etc.
  • Conjunctival images from slit lamp: segmentation of vessel structures, estimation of clinical parameters, such as vessel density and tortuosity.
