Learning-based approach for the automatic detection of the optic disc in digital retinal fundus photographs

Abstract

The optic disc is an important feature in the retina. We propose a method for the detection of the optic disc based on a supervised learning scheme. The method employs pixel and local neighbourhood features extracted from the ROI of a digital retinal fundus photograph. A support vector machine based classification mechanism is used to classify each image… (More)
