retinal color photographs and florescent anjiography images registration

Murat Kucukevcilioglu
i am an ophthalmologist and i am doing a study in retina patients who have a well known entity in the elderly known as age-related macular degeneration. main finding in this disease is accumulation in the back of the eye as small yellow spots named druse seen clinically. I am trying to compare the actual size of the druse from color photographs to corresponding fluorescence on the fluorescein angiography. i tried to register images but results were not so good. i m open to any advice....

Hi Murat,

I am also working with fundus photo images in ImageJ, where I need to
register fundus photos taken at different wavelengths with the greatest
accuracy attainable -- sub-pixel if possible. I explored freely available
options, such the ones found in Fiji, but was not entirely happy with the
results. As you are working with different modalities (FA and color fundus
photos), that would probably be even more difficult.

There used to be a free project at Rensselaer called RIVERS which might
have been the best option for what you're doing. Unfortunately, this is no
longer available, but the tool is now a commercial product called "i2k
Retina" sold by DualAlign. I tried the free trial version and the results
were impressive. They do offer discounts for use in academic research which
I'm considering, as I would now like to register SLO images with fundus
photos. If someone knows about a free alternative, I would like to hear
about it.

Hi David
I want to ask something else. After registration can I quantify and compare the size of the each druse on color photo and fluorescein foto
Thankss

Thanks for you help David

Do you know how I can quantify the druse size after aligning the color and FA images.

Best
Murat

Re: retinal color photographs and florescent anjiography images registration

Davíð Þór Bragason
Hi Murat,

After the two images have been registered, you could draw the outlines of
the drusen on the FA and fundus photo images separately as ROIs using the
"freehand selections" tool. This would give you their respective areas in
square pixels, which would be directly comparable if all you need is their
relative sizes. If you need absolute sizes (e.g. square microns), then you
need to calibrate the images in some way, e.g. based on the size of the
optic disc or something like that.

Once you have the registered images, it can be helpful to make an image
stack out the them, which makes it easy to switch back and forth to get a
visual feel for the outline of the lesions on each image.

By the way, I noticed you're at U Iowa, in which case you could possibly
have access to in-house expertise in eye fundus image processing using
ImageJ from Michael Abramoff.

Good luck,
David
