    Detailed Analysis of Semantic Segmentation of Diabetic Retinopathy Lesions
    Author(s): Pedro Furtado*

    Diabetic retinopathy is a diabetes complication that affects the eyes, caused by damage to the blood vessels of the light-sensitive tissue of the retina. At the onset, diabetic retinopathy may cause no symptoms or only mild vision problems, but eventually it can cause blindness. Totally automated segmentation of Eye Fundus Images (EFI) is a necessary step for accurate and early quantification of lesions, useful in the future for better automated diagnosis of degree of diabetic retinopathy and damage caused by the disease. Deep Learning segmentation networks are the state-of-the-art, but quality, limitations and comparison of architectures of segmentation networks is necessary. We build off-theshelf deep learning architectures and evaluate them on a publicly available dataset, to conclude the strengths and limitations of the approaches and to compare architectures. Results show that th.. Read More»
