Paper Abstract

Diabetic retinopathy has several clinical data sources for medical diagnosis, but the lack of tools to process the data generates a subjective and unclear diagnosis. The use of convolutional networks to analyze and extract features in eye fundus images may help with an automatic detection to support medical personnel in the grading of diabetic retinopathy. This paper presents a description of convolutional neural networks as a good methodology to detect and discriminate between exudate and healthy regions in eye fundus images.
