Computational Analysis of the Human Eye with Applications by Sumeet Dua

By Sumeet Dua

Advances in semi-automated high-throughput photograph info assortment exercises, coupled with a decline in garage expenditures and a rise in high-performance computing ideas have resulted in an exponential surge in facts accrued via biomedical scientists and scientific practitioners. analyzing this uncooked information is a not easy activity, and nowhere is that this extra obtrusive than within the box of opthalmology. The sheer velocity at which info on cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and different eye problems are accrued, makes it most unlikely for the human observer to without delay computer screen sophisticated, but severe info.

This e-book is a unique and well-timed recreation to provide, in an amalgamated layout, computational snapshot modeling equipment as utilized to numerous extrinsic clinical difficulties in ophthalmology. it really is self-contained and offers a hugely finished array of snapshot modeling algorithms and methodologies correct to ophthalmologic difficulties. The booklet is the 1st of its type, bringing eye imaging and multi-dimensional hyperspectral imaging and information fusion of the human eye, into concentration.

The editors are on the best in their fields and produce a robust multidisciplinary synergy to this visionary quantity. Their ''inverted-pyramid'' strategy in featuring the content material, and concentrate on center purposes, will attract scholars and practitioners within the box
