    Application of morphological operators for optic nerve head segmentation in optical coherence tomography images

    Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an imaging mod-ality that has several advantages (e.g. high resolution and three dimensional imaging) in comparison with other oph-thalmic imaging methods. Retinal structures, such as the optic nerve head (ONH), can be examined in detail. The geometry of the ONH can offer valuable information for the detection of glaucoma, because it is affected by this disease. However, manual examinations are highly subjective. In this study we present an approach using morphological operators for the completely automated segmentation of the ONH region, which is crucial for the further examination of the geometrical parameters that indicate ...
