The major limitations of precise evaluation of retinal structures in present clinical situations are the lack of standardization, the inherent subjectivity involved in the interpretation of retinal images, and intra- as well as interobserver variability. While evaluating optic disc deformation in glaucoma, these limitations could be overcome by using(More)
A modular, unsupervised neural network architecture that can be used for clustering and classification of complex data sets is presented. The adaptive fuzzy leader clustering (AFLC) architecture is a hybrid neural-fuzzy system that learns online in a stable and efficient manner. The system used a control structure similar to that found in the adaptive(More)
A new approach of backward coding of wavelet trees (BCWT) is presented. Contrary to the common " forward " coding of wavelet trees from the highest level (lowest resolution), the new approach starts coding from the lowest level and goes backward by building a map of maximum quantization levels of descendants. BCWT eliminates several major bottlenecks of(More)
This report addresses the issues involved in developing a robust segmentation technique capable of finding the location and orientation of the cervical vertebrae in x-ray images. This technique should be invariant to rotation, scale, noise, occlusions and shape variability. A customized approach, based on the Generalized Hough transform (GHT), that captures(More)
