In medical images linear patterns such as blood vessels are important structures for computer-aided diagnosis and follow-up of many diseases. Moreover, image processing techniques are required to extract suitable information about vascular tree and its alteration. Analyzing of retinal blood vessel is critical work for the investigation of some diseases. In this study, we present an automated method for detecting retinal vasculatures based upon Radon transform. In preprocessing, we used top-hat… CONTINUE READING
