Methods to enhance digital fundus image for diabetic retinopathy detection

Husna Ab Rahim; Ahmad Syahir Ibrahim; W Mimi Diyana W Zaki; Aini Hussain 2014 IEEE 10th International Colloquium on Signal Processing and its Applications, 2014

Digital fundus images (DFIs) are crucial in detecting pathological phenomenon that would lead to various diseases. However, DFI has multiple contrast and illumination problems which makes enhancement a necessity. Consequently, DFI must be enhanced to allow for better visualization in order to facilitate ophthalmologists to carry out their diagnosis. In this work, an investigation of three enhancement methods namely, Histogram ...


Shape Particle Guided Tissue Classification

M. de Bruijne 2006 Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Workshop (CVPRW'06), 2006

In many cases, the accuracy of statistical pixel classification can be improved by applying a spatially varying prior that can be derived from a shape model. We propose to represent the prior knowledge on the spatial distribution of tissue classes by a distribution of shape particles, each representing one possible distribution of tissue classes. Classification and shape can then be ...

    Fundus images of the retina are color images of the eye taken by specially designed digital cameras. Ophthalmologists rely on fundus images to diagnose various diseases that affect the eye, such as diabetic retinopathy and retinopathy of prematurity. A crucial preliminary step in the analysis of retinal images is the identification and localization of important anatomical structures, such as the optic nerve head (ONH), the macula, and the major vascular arcades. Identification of the ONH is an important initial step in the detection and analysis of the anatomical structures and pathological features in the retina. Different types of retinal pathology may be detected and analyzed via the application of appropriately designed techniques of digital image processing and pattern recognition. Computer-aided analysis of retinal images has the potential to facilitate quantitative and objective analysis of retinal lesions and abnormalities. Accurate identification and localization of retinal f atures and lesions could contribute to improved diagnosis, treatment, and management of retinopathy. This book presents an introduction to diagnostic imaging of the retina and an overview of image processing techniques for ophthalmology. In particular, digital image processing algorithms and pattern analysis techniques for the detection of the ONH are described. In fundus images, the ONH usually appears as a bright region, white or yellow in color, and is indicated as the convergent area of the network of blood vessels. Use of the geometrical and intensity characteristics of the ONH, as well as the property that the ONH represents the location of entrance of the blood vessels and the optic nerve into the retina, is demonstrated in developing the methods. The image processing techniques described in the book include morphological filters for preprocessing fundus images, filters for edge detection, the Hough transform for the detection of lines and circles, Gabor filters to detect the b ood vessels, and phase portrait analysis for the detection of convergent or node- like patterns. Illustrations of application of the methods to fundus images from two publicly available databases are presented, in terms of locating the center and the boundary of the ONH. Methods for quantitative evaluation of the results of detection of the ONH using measures of overlap and free-response receiver operating characteristics are also described.

  • VEs in Medicine; Medicine in VEs

    The first developments in virtual environments (VEs) started in the 2nd century C.E., when the Greek Galen demonstrated the theory of the spatial perception of the left and right eye. That theory was a point of departure for the work by Wheatstone in 1833, to create a breakthrough with his stereoscope. An ingenious system of mirrors presented depth cues to a subject who looked at two perspective drawings. That was before photography was developed. Yet another breakthrough in the long history of VE technology was the demonstration of the experience theater called Sensorama by the American Morton Heilig (mid-1950s). Heilig, a photographer and designer of cameras and projectors in Hollywood, devised a machine to stimulate all human senses. VE techniques were developed worldwide by, among others, Ivan Sutherland and David Evans in the 1960s. Revolutionary developments in computer graphics display hardware and software revolutionized airline safety in the form of real-time interactive flight simulators. The real hype started in 1989, when Jaron Lanier, who is often called the step-father of VEs, generated business from VE technology. Charles Dotter started experimenting with threading radio- opaque catheters through blood vessels under fluoroscopic-image guidance in the 1960s. Those experiments were a trigger point for the avalanche of minimally invasive imaging procedures emerging today in clinical practice. Dotter was the first to interact and intervene with a patient in an indirect way: He looked at shadow images in stead of the patient. The first step toward medicine in VE was taken. This chapter advocates the use of VE technologies in the field of medicine to render medical services in a virtual world: to bring medical care to the patient and to improve care by dedicated training and skills building. This chapter begins by highlighting the technologies involved with VE and how these technologies create benefits for the medical community. The second part of the chapter illustrates that the combined efforts of the medical and computer societies have already created real products. However, there is still a lot of effort needed to revolutionize health care.

    The monitoring of the effects of retinopathy on the visual system can be assisted by analyzing the vascular architecture of the retina. This book presents methods based on Gabor filters to detect blood vessels in fundus images of the retina. Forty images of the retina from the Digital Retinal Images for Vessel Extraction (DRIVE) database were used to evaluate the performance of the methods. The results demonstrate high efficiency in the detection of blood vessels with an area under the receiver operating characteristic curve of 0.96. Monitoring the openness of the major temporal arcade (MTA) could facilitate improved diagnosis and optimized treatment of retinopathy. This book presents methods for the detection and modeling of the MTA, including the generalized Hough transform to detect parabolic forms. Results obtained with 40 images of the DRIVE database, compared with hand- drawn traces of the MTA, indicate a mean distance to the closest point of about 0.24mm. This book illustrates a plications of the methods mentioned above for the analysis of the effects of proliferative diabetic retinopathy and retinopathy of prematurity on retinal vascular architecture.
