    A Simple Algorithm for Hard Exudate Detection in Diabetic Retinopathy Using Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

    Hard exudates are usually seen in the course of diabetic retinopathy. This illness is one of the most common reasons for blind registration in the world. Due to the data presented by World Health Organization (WHO) the number of people who lose sight because of undetected diabetes will be doubled by 2050. The purpose of this paper is to introduce an enhanced algorithm for hard exudates detection in Optical Coherence Tomography images. In these samples, dangerous pathological changes can be observed in the form of yellow-red spots. During the experiments more than 150 images were used to calculate the accuracy ...
