An ophthalmic fundus camera was modified for spectral imaging of the human retina. Spectral channels were separated using 30 narrow bandpass interference filters in the visual range from 400 to 700 nm. A monochrome digital charge-coupled device camera was used as a detector. Using this system, spectral fundus images were recorded from 72 voluntary human subjects: 55 diabetic patients and 17 healthy control subjects. Furthermore, using the gathered spectral data, optimal illuminations' spectral power distributions for the detection of different lesions of diabetic retinopathy and retinal landmarks (e.g., macula) were calculated. Optimized illuminations were found to enhance the visibility and contrast of retinal features. Computational example images are presented.

More about this publication?
  • The Journal of Imaging Science and Technology (JIST) is dedicated to the advancement of imaging science knowledge, the practical applications of such knowledge, and how imaging science relates to other fields of study. The pages of this journal are open to reports of new theoretical or experimental results, and to comprehensive reviews. Only original manuscripts that have not been previously published, nor currently submitted for publication elsewhere, should be submitted.

    IS&T's JIST-first publication option allows authors wishing to present their work at conferences, but have a journal citation for their paper, to submit a paper to JIST that follows the same rigorous peer-review vetting and publication process as traditional JIST articles, but with the benefit of a condensed time-to-publication time frame and guaranteed conference presentation slot.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
