    Statistical modeling of retinal optical coherence tomography using the Weibull mixture model

    In this paper, a novel statistical model is proposed for retinal optical coherence tomography (OCT) images. According to the layered structure of the retina, a mixture of six Weibull distributions is proposed to describe the main statistical features of OCT images. We apply Weibull distribution to establish a more comprehensive model but with fewer parameters that has better goodness of fit (GoF) than previous models. Our new model also takes care of features such as asymmetry and heavy-tailed nature of the intensity distribution of retinal OCT data. In order to test the effectiveness of this new model, we apply it ...
