Optic Disc Segmentation from Retinal Fundus Images via Deep Object Detection Networks.

Abstract

Accurate optic disc (OD) segmentation is a fundamental step in computer-aided ocular disease diagnosis. In this paper, we propose a new pipeline to segment OD from retinal fundus images based on deep object detection networks. The fundus image segmentation problem is redefined as a relatively more straightforward object detection task. This then allows us to determine the OD boundary simply by transforming the predicted bounding box into a vertical and non-rotated ellipse. Using Faster R-CNN as the object detector, our method achieves state-of-the-art OD segmentation results on ORIGA dataset, outperforming existing methods in this field.
