Sixth Indian Conference on Computer Vision, Graphics & Image Processing Colour Retinal Image Enhancement based on Domain Knowledge

By Gopal Datt Joshi and Jayanthi Sivaswamy


Retinal images are widely used to manually or automatically detect and diagnose many diseases. Due to the complex imaging setup, there is a large luminosity and contrast variability within and across images. Here, we use the knowledge of the imaging geometry and propose an enhancement method for colour retinal images, with a focus on contrast improvement with no introduction of artifacts. The method uses non-uniform sampling to estimate the degradation and derive a correction factor from a single plane. We also propose a scheme for applying the derived correction factor to enhance all the colour planes of a given image. The proposed enhancement method has been tested on a publicly available dataset [8]. Results show marked improvement over existing methods. 1
