A fast and automated method of the MF (macula fovea) center detection in retinal images is presented, which is a prerequisite for DR (diabetic retinopathy) screening project or the computer aided diagnosis of DME (diabetic macular edema). The approach is based on foregone anatomical structures of retina constraints on the relative locations and the intensity information within the OD (optic disk) circle boundary. Firstly, OD circle boundary is obtained accurately using adaptive thresholding… CONTINUE READING
