Review On Template Matching And Registration Of Retina Images For Teleophthalmology

[Full Text]



Mrs.B.Sivaranjani, Dr.C.Kalaiselvi



Retinal images, Registration, Segmentation, Motion Parameter Estimation, Real Time Tracking, Template matching



The process of diagnosis and treatment concerned with various ailments that affects the retina and the choroid beneath it need acquiring a set of fund us images, which uses the fund us camera. Also, these images require processing for achieving a better form of diagnosis and also treatment planning. The process of retinal image template matching is highly necessary for the extraction of particular features, which may be of immense use in diagnosis and medical treatment. In addition, registration of retinal images is hugely valuable during the extraction the motion parameters, which aid in creating an entire map on the eye’s retina and also in retinal tracking process. This research work presents an analysis for the image preprocessing, dimensionality reduction, template matching and registration approaches, which were reported for retinal images also.
