Automatic Exudates Detection in Diabetic Retinopathy Images

H. Faouzi, Mohamed Fakir


Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) refers to the presence of typical retinal micro vascular lesions in persons with diabetics. When the disease is at the early state, a prompt diagnosis may help in preventing irreversible damages to the diabetic eye. If the exudates are closer to macula, then the situation is critical. Early detection can potentially reduce the risk of blind.  This paper proposes tool for the early detection of Diabetic Retinopathy using edge detection, algorithm kmeans in segmentation phase, invariant moments (Hu and Affine) and descriptor GIST in extraction phase. In the recognition phase, neural network is adopted. All tests are applied on database DIARETDB1.
