    Classification of dry age-related macular degeneration and diabetic macular edema from optical coherence tomography images using dictionary learning

    Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and Diabetic Macular Edema (DME) are the major causes of vision loss in developed countries. Alteration of retinal layer structure and appearance of exudate are the most significant signs of these diseases. With the aim of automatic classification of DME, AMD and normal subjects from Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) images, we proposed a classification algorithm. The two important issues intended in this approach are, not utilizing retinal layer segmentation which by itself is a challenging task and attempting to identify diseases in their early stages, where the signs of diseases appear in a small fraction of ...
