  • Publication number: 20220301111
    Abstract: An image pre-processing method and an image processing apparatus for a fundoscopic image are provided. A region of interest (ROI) is obtained from a fundoscopic image to generate a first image. The ROI is focused on an eyeball in the fundoscopic image. A smoothing process is performed on the first image to generate a second image. A value difference between neighboring pixels in the second image is increased to generate a third image.
