Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR THE SEGMENTATION OF OPTICAL COHERENCE TOMOGRAPHY SLICES
Abstract:
The present disclosure describes a system and method to segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) images. The present system uses a hybrid method that employs both Bayesian level sets (BLS) and graph-based segmentation algorithms. The system first identifies retinal tissue within an OCT image using the BLS algorithms. The identified retinal tissue is then further segmented using the graph-based segmentation algorithms.
