We present a method for retinal blood vessel segmentation based upon the scale-space analysis of the first and second derivative of the intensity image which gives information about its topology and overcomes the problem of variations in contrast inherent in these images. We use the local maxima over scales of the magnitude of the gradient and the maximum principal curvature as the two features used in a region growing procedure. In the first stage, the growth is constrained to regions of low… CONTINUE READING
