    Deep learning-based automated detection of retinal diseases using optical coherence tomography images

    Retinal disease classification is a significant problem in computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) for medical applications. This paper is focused on a 4-class classification problem to automatically detect choroidal neovascularization (CNV), diabetic macular edema (DME), DRUSEN, and NORMAL in optical coherence tomography (OCT) images. The proposed classification algorithm adopted an ensemble of four classification model instances to identify retinal OCT images, each of which was based on an improved residual neural network (ResNet50). The experiment followed a patient-level 10-fold cross-validation process, on development retinal OCT image dataset. The proposed approach achieved 0.973 (95% confidence interval [CI], 0.971–0.975) classification ...
