Early Detection of Diabetic Retinopathy Edema Using FCM

Anitha Mohan | K.Moorthy


Abstract: Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a common retinal complication associated with diabetes. It is a major cause of blindness in middle as well as older age groups. Therefore early detection through regular screening and timely intervention will be highly beneficial in effectively controlling the progress of the disease. Since the ratio of people afflicted with the disease to the number of eye specialist who can screen these patients is very high, there is a need of automated diagnostic system for diabetic retinopathy changes in the eye so that only diseased persons can be referred to the specialist for further intervention and treatment. The aim of the project is to find the exudates parts in the eye of diabetic patients. In this method, FCM (fuzzy c-means) algorithm is used for finding the ratio of the disease. A major advantage of our algorithm is which implies greater accuracy of exudates detection


Keywords: Diabetic macular edema, hard exudates, fuzzy c-means, hue saturation value
