Advanced eye imaging and modeling techniques are paving the way to powerful new clinical applications, and this groundbreaking book puts researchers right at the cutting edge. It's the first book to detail emerging computational methods that combine 2D and 3D image processing, simulation, and statistical analysis in efforts to improve early detection of cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, corneal haze, maculopathy, iridocyclitis, and other conditions. Written by a "who's who" in biomedical imaging, this comprehensive volume covers the essentials of the human eye, eye imaging systems, and imaging optics. Moreover, it presents the latest advances in computer-based detection and identification of eye conditions. Supported by 250 illustrations, this definitive work provides researchers and bioengineers with the know-how they need to develop diagnostic and therapeutic tools for ocular health.
