Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness. Glaucoma can be diagnosed through measurement of neuro-retinal optic cup-to-disc ratio (CDR). Automatic calculation of optic cup boundary is challenging due to the interweavement of blood vessels with the surrounding tissues around the cup. A Convex Hull based Neuro-Retinal Optic Cup Ellipse Optimization algorithm improves the accuracy of the boundary estimation. The algorithm’s effectiveness is demonstrated on 70 clinical patient’s data set… CONTINUE READING
