Develop a Novel Screening Tool Based on Wavelet Transform for Identification of Diabetic Retinopathy | Original Article
Diabetes is a long term organ disorder that occurs when the level of blood sugar is huge as pancreas does not produce enough insulin in body or alternatively, cells do not react well to insulin. Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) is the critical and most common eye related disease which arises on diabetic patients. It appear when the blood vessels of retina started to swell and leaks blood that at last became major source of vision loss. Early retinal screening is the best solution to prevent from Diabetic Retinopathy. In this paper we present an Image Retrieval method which find and retrieve the patient’s retina image from the Database of normal and DR affected images. A retrieval process will be developed by extracting image’s features by using Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) and checking the similarity between the query and database image by measuring the Euclidean distance. The Discrete Wavelet Transform retrieval system will give fast search over the number of images and improve accuracy. The presented system will reduces the professionals work to analyze every fundus image rather than diabetic affected image and develop a prototypical DR image management system to improve diagnostic performance.
