Performance Comparison of Pre-trained Deep Neural Networks for Automated Glaucoma Detection
This paper addresses automated glaucoma detection system using pre-trained convolutional neural networks (CNNs). CNNs, a class of deep neural networks (DNNs), extract features of high-level abstractions from the fundus images, thereby eliminating the need for hand-crafted features which are prone to inaccuracies in segmenting landmark regions and require excessive involvement of experts for annotating these landmarks. This work investigates the applicability of pre-trained CNNs for glaucoma diagnosis, which is preferred when the dataset size is small. Further, pre-trained networks have the advantage of the quick model building. The proposed system has been validated on the High-Resolution (HRF), which is a publicly available benchmark database. Results demonstrate that among other pre-trained CNNs, VGG16 network is more suitable for glaucoma diagnosis.
