The Framework Modality m ti Modality k Structural Changes -Color Images Modality m tj Types of Changes in Non-vascular Regions Modality k (Objects) Decrease in Red Disappearance of bleeding or microaneurysm Increase in Yellow Appearance of exudate Disappearance of exudate IUS Assisted Image Correction (Corrected Images) Application Specific Pre-Processing Retinal Vessel Oximetry Bayesian Change Classifier Appearance of bleeding or microaneurysm Decrease in Yellow Image Understanding System Registration Significance Increase in Red Image Understanding System Functional Changes-Dual Wavelength Images Features used for the classification: Type of Color Change This work was supported in part by Cen. SSIS, the Center for Subsurface Sensing and Imaging Systems, under the Engineering Research Centers Program of the National Science Foundation (Award Number EEC-9986821) The image at 570 nm is traced and the trace segments are linked and named according to the hierarchy Image correction involves median filtering to remove any noise Bayesian classification rule: Measure the optical density (OD) based on the minimum reflectance inside the vessel and the average outside reflectance Describing Vascular Changes Bayesian model selection used to associate descriptions with regions of changes in the vasculature. Information from the tracing algorithm (IUS) and the change classifier are combined to get the likelihood functions. Absorption spectra of Hb.

Cree et al. [1, 2] detect microaneurysms from a region of interest around the fovea from images at distinct time points and compare them to find changes. Studies of microaneurysm turnover were also made by Goatman et al. . They detected microaneurysms from baseline and followup angiograms, registered the images and categorized the microaneurysms into three classes namely, static, new and regressed. Sbeh and Cohen  segment drusen based on a morphological method called geodesic reconstruction and study the evolution of drusen over time. . All these methods have the limitation that they handle only a certain kind of lesion and also the changes are obtained from individual segmentation of the images. The present work contributes multiple advances over the above literature, overcoming many of the noted limitations. The net result is an algorithm and a systematic non-limiting framework that allows a broad range of longitudinal changes to be detected and classified with a high degree of reliability.
