A Robust Algorithm for Retinal Blood Vessel Extraction

Abstract

Non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (NDPR) detection is currently a highly interested research area. Ophthalmologists detect NDPR by observing disorders in the vessel system. Therefore segmentation of the vessel system will be an aid for ophthalmologist in order to detect an early retinopathy. In this proposed frame work a novel method based on Gabo Filter and adaptive thresholding has been used. The results have been tested using sensitivity and specificity and the values are 92.36% and 87.52% respectively.
