A REVIEW OF AUTOMATIC RETINAL BLOOD VESSEL SEGMENTATION TECHNIQUES

Sonali Sharma, Abhishek Gupta.

Abstract
ABSTRACT
In clinical ophthalmology segmentation of blood vessels and optic disk in retinal images is of great interest. The
analysis of vessels in retinal images provides a better way for diagnosing several cardiovascular and retinal
diseases. Manual segmentation of vessels and optic disk is done by the clinical ophthalmologists who are
professional and highly experienced in performing segmentation. Manual segmentation is extremely hard task
and is prone to human errors. Therefore automatic segmentation of vessels and optic disk in fundus images is
important in medical application. We have presented a review paper on the technologies for the automatic
segmentation of blood vessels in retinal or fundus images. In this review paper we have discussed the
comparisons of different segmentation techniques for segmenting the vessels in the fundus images. Many blood
vessel segmentation techniques are developed with effective results

Key words: Keywords: Fundus Image, Image Segmentation, Optic Disc, Supervised Methods and Unsupervised Methods
