Volume 8 No.2 April-June 2019 pp 59-63
This paper aims at development of Oscillating Pendulum Based Algorithm (OPBA) for retinal image width computation and analysis for the investigation of Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). The algorithms have been explained in detail with theoretical investigations and simulations, images from local hospital data base were considered in the investigation. Further this paper also presents an overview of direct retinal vessel width computation method along with the comparative analysis. The results obtained are found to be encouraging for analysis of plus disease under ROP.
