Presence of peripapillary chorioretinal atrophy (PPA) is considered one of the risk factors for glaucoma. It can be identified as bright regions in retinal fundus images, and therefore, incorrectly included as the part of the optic disc regions in the automated disc detection scheme. For potential risk assessment and use in improving optic disc segmentation… CONTINUE READING
