    Purpose To assess the general feasibility of recording multifocal electroretinograms (mfERGs) with simultaneous fundus monitoring in a clinical setting. Methods An mfERG system (RETIscan) and a confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscope (Heidelberg Retina Angiograph) were connected to record mfERGs...

    Abstract--Available output in the Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope (SLO) may be expressed as radiant power at the beam pivot (SLO exit pupil), in units of microwatts (micro, W). This power corresponds to dimensions of brightness (like luminance and retinal illuminance) and to a range of related...

    Abstract--We present a method for calibrating the Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope (SLO) that predicts radiant power at any of 256 grayscale values (gsv) and 12 polarized filter (polarizer) levels. Predicted power values, p(gsv), were determined by substitution into polynomials linearly transformed...

    This paper presents a multi-phase, model-based approach to view planning for automated, high fidelity object inspection or reconstruction by means of laser scanning range sensors. We describe the critical phase, fine modeling, in detail. Quality objectives and performance measures are defined....

    With the development of terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) and its applications in forestry, the question arises as to how the scanners should be ideally placed for the best possible data acquisition. We searched for an optimal scanning distance for recognition of stems in natural beech-dominated...

    The article offers information on diagnostic procedures that are applicable to the retina. It notes the usability of extended opththalmoscopy to document the normality of every thing if the patient presents with specific symptoms. It mentions the essentiality of oral fluorescein angiography in...

    In the 3D laser line scanning system, the CCD camera is used to collected the reflection image of laser scan line on the object surface. Due to the effects of normal vector of object surface, there has deviation between energy center of light stripe and geometric center of light plane, and this...
