ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Retinal blood vessel changes (e.g., vessel caliber) are important indicators for earlier diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases. To quantify the changes automatically, a reliable vessel detection is essential. However, blood vessel detection in retinal image is complicated by a huge variation in a number of factors such as local contrast, vessel width and vessel central reflex. In this paper, we propose a new technique to detect retinal blood vessels which is able to address these issues. The core of the technique is a new vessel edge selection method which combines the method of finding edge pattern and edge profiling techniques. Experimental results show that 92.40% success rate in the identification of vessel start-points and 88.73% success rate in tracking the major vessels.||Source Title:||BIOSIGNALS 2011 - Proceedings of the International Conference on Bio-Inspired Systems and Signal Processing||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/109745||ISBN:||9789898425355|
