reduce the incidence of blindness in diabetic patients. In this work we implement and evaluate the performance of different algorithms for automatic exudate detection. These consist of a mathematical morphological technique, a fuzzy c-means clustering technique, a naive Bayesian classifier, a support vector machine and a nearest neighbor classifier. The detection accuracy is defined with respect to expert ophthalmologists' hand-drawn ground-truths and the results are presented and comparatively… CONTINUE READING
