Sažetak
Background and objective Diabetic retinopathy is one of the leading disabling chronic diseases and one of the leading causes of preventable blindness in developed world. Early diagnosis of diabetic retinopathy enables timely treatment and in order to achieve it a major effort will have to be invested into automated population screening programs. Detection of exudates in color fundus photographs is very important for early diagnosis of diabetic retinopathy. Methods We use deep convolutional neural networks for exudate detection. In order to incorporate high level anatomical knowledge about potential exudate locations, output of the convolutional neural network is combined with the output of the optic disc detection and vessel detection procedures. Results In the validation step using a manually segmented image database we obtain a maximum F1 measure of 0.78. Conclusions As manually segmenting and counting exudate areas is a tedious task, having a reliable automated output, such as automated segmentation using convolutional neural networks in combination with other landmark detectors, is an important step in creating automated screening programs for early detection of diabetic retinopathy.
