Abstract: The evaluation of diameter of retinal vessel is associated with the diagnosis of diabetes, hypertension, arteriosclerosis, stroke, etc. This paper proposes a tracking method of the boundary of the retinal vessel on eye fundus image with low visibility, and an evaluation of retinal arteriovenous ratio (AVR). In this study, the effectiveness of the proposed method has been shown through the experiments for the actual retinal images of cataract patients.
Keywords: Retinal Fundus Image, Computer-Aided Diagnosis, Retinal Arteriovenous Ratio.
