Abstract

Retinal vessel extraction has become an important task of medical image processing applications in order to diagnose ocular diseases. In this paper, a novel methodology is proposed to extract vessels automatically from retinal angiographies. The proposed methodology has been implemented by means of Cellular Neural Networks techniques to take advantage of their capabilities of massively parallel processing reducing computation time required.
