Resumen

© 2018 IEEE. According to estimations of the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 4.5 million persons will become blind due to the primary Glaucoma. For these reasons, in this paper, we present a simple approach to estimate the risk of suffering from glaucoma that presents a patient. Our proposal relies on the automatic analysis of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) images through the calculus of nerve fiber and ganglionary vessels areas. To this aim, our system separates the two areas mentioned before through computer vision techniques and the Newton Interpolation Method. Once the two areas are separated, the system determines the size of each of them. This proposal was validated through an experiment carried out with OCT 30 images (per eye). The results are encouraging, and the suggestions provided by the system match with medical diagnosis.
