Automated image processing has the potential to assist in the early detection of diabetes, by detecting changes in blood vessel patterns in the retina. This paper describes progress towards the development of an integrated automated analyser of the retinal blood vessels in the vicinity of the optic disc using digital colour retinal images. First the optic disc was detected using a combination of Butterworth filtering, canny edge detection and morphological filters. After finding initial points… CONTINUE READING
