    An Automated Framework of Inner Segment/Outer  Segment Defect Detection for Retinal SD-OCT Images

    The integrity of inner segment/outer segment (IS/OS) has high correlation with lower visual acuity in patients suffering from blunt trauma. An automated 3D IS/OS defect detection method based on the SD-OCT images was proposed. First, 11 surfaces were automatically segmented using the multiscale 3D graph-search approach. Second, the sub-volumes between surface 7 and 8 containing IS/OS region around the fovea (diameter of 1mm) were extracted and flattened based on the segmented retinal pigment epithelium layer. Third, 5 kinds of texture based features were extracted for each voxel. A KNN classifier was trained and each voxel was ...
