    Automated anterior chamber angle localization and glaucoma type classification in OCT images

    To identify glaucoma type with OCT (optical coherence tomography) images, we present an image processing and machine learning based framework to localize and classify anterior chamber angle (ACA) accurately and efficiently. In digital OCT photographs, our method automatically localizes the ACA region, which is the primary structural image cue for clinically identifying glaucoma type. Next, visual features are extracted from this region to classify the angle as open angle (OA) or angle-closure (AC). This proposed method has three major contributions that differ from existing methods. First, the ACA localization from OCT images is fully automated and efficient for different ACA ...
