CONF quelhas03b/IDIAP Vessel Segmentation and Branching Detection using an Adaptive Profile Kalman Filter in Retinal Blood Vessel Structure Analysis Quelhas, Pedro Boyce, James EXTERNAL https://publications.idiap.ch/attachments/papers/2003/quelhas_IbPria03.pdf PUBLIC https://publications.idiap.ch/index.php/publications/showcite/quelhas03a Related documents Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis: First Iberian Conference, IbPRIA 2003, Springer-Verlag LNCS 2652 802-809 2003 June 2003 IDIAP-RR 03-58 This paper presents an improved tracking based method for retinal vessel segmentation that uses blood vessel morphology to adapt the tracking parameters. The method includes branching detection and avoidance methods. A bi-level threshold method, based on local vessel information, is used for segmentation. Tracking is based on Kalman filtering. The results are compared with existing ground truth. It is concluded that ground truth segmentation is not easily comparable.
