The classification of retinal vessels into arteries and veins is an important step for the analysis of retinal vascular trees, for which the scientists have proposed several classification methods. [] Key Method The labeling criterion is set after a careful analysis of the physiological facts about the retinal vascular system. In addition, the labeling process also includes several versions of original images to get certainty.
