The choroid plays an important role in the pathogenesis of many diseases of the back section of the eye. A comprehensive visualization and knowledge of the choroid is still lacking despite advances in imaging technologies. En-face Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) provides detailed images useful to understand choroidal vasculature. In the paper, in order to get essential information about circulation-related ocular diseases, an image processing and measurement procedure is presented, capable of providing an efficient choroidal vessel segmentation and caliber estimation starting from en-face OCT images.

Abstract

The choroid plays an important role in the pathogenesis of many diseases of the back section of the eye. A comprehensive visualization and knowledge of the choroid is still lacking despite advances in imaging technologies. En-face Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) provides detailed images useful to understand choroidal vasculature. In the paper, in order to get essential information about circulation-related ocular diseases, an image processing and measurement procedure is presented, capable of providing an efficient choroidal vessel segmentation and caliber estimation starting from en-face OCT images.
