Paper Abstract

We describe an efficient approach for the automated segmentation of pathological/morphological structures in ophthalmic Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SDOCT) images. In this algorithm, image pixels are treated as nodes of a graph with edge weights assigned to associate pairs of pixels. The weights vary according to the distances, brightness differences, and feature variations between pixel pairs. Cuts through the graph with minimum accumulated weights correspond to morphological layer boundaries. This approach has been applied to SDOCT images with encouraging results and thus forms an adaptable framework for the segmentation of many different ophthalmic structures.
