In development of automated screening systems
for diabetic retinopathy, main step is Optic disc detection and
vascular feature extraction. Here, we propose a method for
diagnosis of Diabetic Retinopathy using optic disc and
vascular features based retinal image matching. This method
can be used for Person identification using retinal images or
automatic detection of Diabetic Retinopathy. Optic disc and
vascular features are the two important features extracted from
the retinal image. On the basis of these features, corresponding
images are matched. Image matching method identifies the
same blood vessel in the corresponding images and compare
the desired features. Initial results are good and demonstrate
that the proposed method is suitable for Diagnosis of Diabetic
