Background: Monitoring retinal oxygenation is of primary importance in detecting the presence of some common eye diseases. To improve the estimation of oxygen tension in retinal vessels, regularized least-squares (RLS) method was shown to be very effective compared with the conventional least-squares (LS) estimation. In this study, we propose an accelerated RLS estimation method for the problem of assessing the oxygenation of retinal vessels from phosphorescence lifetime images.
