A method for transformation of photographic transparencies into three-dimensional relief pictures is presented. Black-and-white or color slides of fundi were scanned by a TV camera, the video signals digitized point by point into 256 gray levels and fed into an image processing computer. After passing low pass filter programs, the pictures were retransformed in an analog form to display them on the monitor of an analog processor in relief form. Free choice of the analog relief parameters allow to produce topographic reliefs, which give three-dimensional impression of the optic disk, the macula and of other contrast-containing structures. The method is peculiarly suitable for the control of optic disk atrophies in case of glaucoma and neuritis.
