    B-Scan Attentive CNN for the Classification of Retinal Optical Coherence Tomography Volumes

    00Optical coherence tomography (OCT) enables 3D cross-sectional imaging of the retinal tissues and has become an essential tool for the diagnosis of eye diseases. Clinically, the ophthalmologists examine each cross-sectional image (B- scan) of the 3D OCT volume to diagnose the retinal pathologies. However, this process is time-consuming and tedious. Automated methods in literature classify the individual B-scans and aggregate the diagnosis decision for the OCT volume using manual threshold-based rules. However, these methods lack generalizability and fail to incorporate the ophthalmologists’ aspects of clinical diagnosis. Therefore, in this letter, we propose a B-scan attentive convolutional neural network (BACNN) that ...
