  • Publication number: 20210304427
    Abstract: A processor of an ophthalmologic image processing device acquires intermediate information from which an influence of a position shift with respect to a first direction at each position in a second direction is excluded, for each of a first ophthalmologic image and a second ophthalmologic image (S4). The processor performs alignment with respect to the second direction between the first ophthalmologic image and the second ophthalmologic image, based on the intermediate information (S5, S6). The processor performs alignment with respect to the first direction between pixels at the same position with respect to the second direction in the first ophthalmologic image and the second ophthalmologic image for which the alignment with respect to the second direction has been performed (S7).

  • Publication number: 20210295508
    Abstract: In this invention, a control unit in an ophthalmic image processing device acquires an ophthalmic image captured by an ophthalmic image capture device (S11). The control unit, by inputting the ophthalmic image into a mathematical model that has been trained by a machine-learning algorithm, acquires a probability distribution in which the random variables are the coordinates at which a specific site and/or a specific boundary of a tissue is present within a region of the ophthalmic image (S14). On the basis of the acquired probability distribution, the control unit detects the specific boundary and/or the specific site (S16, S24).

  • Publication number: 20200305719
    Abstract: A target image to be corrected is generated by arranging partial images acquired by scanning a tissue of a living body with light and temporally continuously receiving the light from the tissue. A processor of a medical image processing device performs detecting position shift amounts, acquiring a component, and correcting. In the process of detecting position shift amounts, the processor detects the position shift amounts between the partial images (S3). In the process of acquiring, the processor acquires an assumed result of at least one of a component in the position shift amount caused by movement of the tissue, and a component in the position shift amount caused by a shape of the tissue (S4). In the process of correcting, the processor corrects a position of each of the partial images based on the component in the position shift amount (S7).

  • Publication number: 20200311925
    Abstract: An ophthalmological image processing apparatus acquires a plurality of images of a subject eye photographed in a scanning-type imaging optical system, sets any one of the plurality of images as a template, sets corresponding points or corresponding regions between an image of the subject eye and the template at a plurality of positions of each of the image of the subject eye and the template, calculates a movement amount of each of the corresponding points or each of the corresponding regions, and corrects a distortion of the image of the subject eye with respect to the template based on the movement amount of each of the corresponding points or each of the corresponding regions.

  • Publication number: 20200245858
    Abstract: A processor of an ophthalmologic image processing device acquires an ophthalmologic image photographed by an ophthalmologic image photographing device. The processor inputs the ophthalmologic image into a mathematical model trained by a machine learning algorithm to acquire a result of an analysis relating to at least one of a specific disease and a specific structure of a subject eye. The processor acquires information of a distribution of weight relating to an analysis by a mathematical model, as supplemental distribution information, for which an image area of the ophthalmologic image input into the mathematical model is set as a variable. The processor sets a part of the image area of the ophthalmologic image, as an attention area, based on the supplemental distribution information. The processor acquires an image of a tissue including the attention area among a tissue of the subject eye and displays the image on a display unit.
