We present a method for automated segmentation of the vasculature in retinal images. The method produces segmentations by classifying each image pixel as vessel or nonvessel, based on the pixel's feature vector. Feature vectors are composed of the pixel's intensity and two-dimensional Gabor wavelet transform responses taken at multiple scales. The Gabor(More)
The detection of microaneurysms in digital color fundus photographs is a critical first step in automated screening for diabetic retinopathy (DR), a common complication of diabetes. To accomplish this detection numerous methods have been published in the past but none of these was compared with each other on the same data. In this work we present the(More)
A fully automated digital image processing system, which provides an objective and repeatable way to quantify microaneurysms in digitised fluorescein angiograms, has been developed. The automated computer processing includes registration of same-eye retinal images for serial studies, cutting of regions-of-interest centred on the fovea, the detection of(More)
We compared the performance of three computer based classification methods when applied to the problem of detecting microaneurysms on digitised angiographic images of the retina. An automated image processing system segmented 'candidate' objects (microaneurysms or spurious objects), and produced a list of features on each candidate for use by the(More)
This paper describes FFTS, a discrete Fourier transform (DFT) library that achieves state-of-the-art performance using a new cache-oblivious algorithm implemented with run-time specialization. During initialization the transform parameters, such as sign and direction, are fixed, allowing sequencing and data access information to be precomputed and(More)
— We present a method for automated segmentation of the vasculature in retinal images. The method produces segmentations by classifying each image pixel as vessel or non-vessel, based on the pixel's feature vector. Feature vectors are composed of the pixel's intensity and continuous two-dimensional Morlet wavelet transform responses taken at multiple(More)
BACKGROUND With the increase in the prevalence of diabetes, rural optometric clinics stand to increase their patient load and assessment of diabetic eye disease. This study aimed to assess whether automated identification of diabetic retinopathy based on the presence of microaneurysms is an effective tool in clinical practice. METHODS We analysed 758(More)
We present two new closed-form methods for mixed pixel/multipath interference separation in AMCW lidar systems. The mixed pixel/multipath interference problem arises from the violation of a standard range-imaging assumption that each pixel integrates over only a single, discrete backscattering source. While a numerical inversion method has previously been(More)
Time-of-flight range imaging systems utilizing the amplitude modulated continuous wave (AMCW) technique often suffer from measurement nonlinearity due to the presence of aliased harmonics within the amplitude modulation signals. Typically a calibration is performed to correct these errors. We demonstrate an alternative phase encoding approach that(More)
