This paper reports on a novel vessel tracking algorithm being developped as part of a set of tools for the automated diagnosis of diabetic retinopathy. The algorithm tracks vessels in low-resolution optical images of the retina using their edge map as computed by the Canny edge operator. Tracking proceeds by following an edge line (which coincides with a vein border) while monitoring the connectivity of its twin border. Breaks in the connectivity trigger the creation of seeds that serve as… CONTINUE READING
