Paper Abstract

Glaucoma neuropathy is a major cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. Current models of chronic care will not be able to close the gap of growing prevalence of glaucoma and challenges for access to healthcare services. Teleophthalmology is being developed to close this gap. In order to develop automated techniques for glaucoma detection which can be used in tele-ophthalmology we have developed a large retinal fundus dataset. A de-identified dataset of retinal fundus images for glaucoma analysis (RIGA) was derived from three sources for a total of 750 images. The optic cup and disc boundaries for each image was marked and annotated manually by six experienced ophthalmologists and included the cup to disc (CDR) estimates. Six parameters were extracted and assessed (the disc area and centroid, cup area and centroid, horizontal and vertical cup to disc ratios) among the ophthalmologists. The inter-observer annotations were compared by calculating the standard deviation (SD) for every image between the six ophthalmologists in order to determine if the outliers amongst the six and was used to filter the corresponding images. The data set will be made available to the research community in order to crowd source other analysis from other research groups in order to develop, validate and implement analysis algorithms appropriate for tele-glaucoma assessment. The RIGA dataset can be freely accessed online through University of Michigan, Deep Blue website (doi:10.7302/Z23R0R29).
