Abstract (Summary of the Work)

Fovea is one of the main features of a fundus retinal image. The problem of automatically locating the Fovea, a spot located in the center of the macula and responsible for sharp central vision, on the retinal surface image is considered. Detection of Fovea region manually by ophthalmologists takes more time. Due to unavailability of trained ophthalmologists especially in developing countries like India automation is highly necessary. This report presents a technique for automatically locating the Fovea region with the help of Mathematical Morphology. The technique brought up here should find its advantage in real-time image-guided applications like a computer-assisted photocoagulation. The technique consists of two steps, first locate the Optic Disc and second locate the Blood Vessel. Then using some geometrical feature we locate the Fovea region.
