New Findings from Gifu University Describe Advances in Biomedicine
January 25th, 2011
A new study, 'Automated segmentation of optic disc region on retinal fundus photographs: Comparison of contour modeling and pixel classification methods,' is now available. According to recent research from Gifu, Japan, "The automatic determination of the optic disc area in retinal fundus images can be useful for calculation of the cup-to-disc (CD) ratio in the glaucoma screening. We compared three different methods that employed active contour model (ACM), fuzzy c-mean (FCM) clustering, and artificial neural network (ANN) for the segmentation of the optic disc regions."
"The results of these methods were evaluated using new databases that included the images captured by...
