Unique identification code for medical fundus images using blood vessel pattern for tele-ophthalmology applications

Unique identification code for medical fundus images using blood vessel pattern for tele-ophthalmology applications

Highlights:

    • The proposed work presents an accurate method for generation of unique identification code for tele-ophthalmology applications.
    • Strategic combination of unique blood vessel pattern and patient ID is considered to generate of unique identification code.
    • At the diagnosis centre, patient ID is accurately recovered from the unique identification code for integrity verification.
    • The proposed method is tested on the publically available data base of fundus image and results are encouraging.
