This paper presents a novel multi-level approach for bleeding detection in Wireless Capsule Endoscopy (WCE) images. In the low-level processing, each cell of K×K pixels is characterized by an adaptive color histogram which optimizes the information representation for WCE images. A Neural Network (NN) cell-classifier is trained to classify cells in an(More)
Cataract is the leading cause of blindness worldwide. In this paper, registration of retroillumination image is investigated for detection of cortical and posterior subcapsular cataract (PSC). The pupil region is detected by local entropy filtering. The anterior image and posterior image are registered using maximum normalized cross-correlation. The(More)
Glaucoma is the second leading cause of permanent blindness worldwide. Glaucoma can be diagnosed through measurement of neuro-retinal optic cup-to-disc ratio (CDR). Correctly determining the optic disc region of interest (ROI) will produce a smaller initial image which takes much lesser time taken to process compared to the entire image. The earlier ROI(More)
In this chapter, we study the needs of digital home photo albums and the different components that are required to provide effective and efficient computer-based tools to match the users' expectations for such systems. We focus mainly on indexing and retrieval of photographic images using symbolic descriptions of image contents. We describe how symbolic(More)
Cataract is one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide. A computer-aided approach to assess nuclear cataract automatically and objectively is proposed in this paper. An enhanced Active Shape Model (ASM) is investigated to extract robust lens contour from slit-lamp images. The mean intensity in the lens area, the color information on the central(More)
Myopia is a growing concern in many societies. In extremely high myopia, pathological myopia, which can cause visual loss, can occur. Pathological myopia is also accompanied by various visually perceivable symptoms on the retina, such as peripapillary atrophy. PAMELA is an automatic system for the detection of pathological myopia through the presence of(More)
An approach to automatically diagnose nuclear cataract based on the slit-lamp image is proposed in this paper. Model-based approach is investigated to detect robust lens structure. Based on the detected lens structure, the mean intensity, the color information on the posterior subcapsular reflex and visual axis profile are extracted as the grading features.(More)
Nonlinear support vector machines (SVMs) rely on the kernel trick and tradeoff parameters to build nonlinear models to classify complex problems and balance misclassification and generalization. The inconvenience in determining the kernel and the parameters has motivated the use of local nearest neighbor (NN) classifiers in lieu of global classifiers. This(More)
