Features Extraction from High Frequency Domain for Retina Digital Images Classification

Abstract— The purpose of this paper is to extract features from retina digital images based on a further analysis of high frequency components (HH) obtained with the discrete wavelet transform (DWT). In particular, the DWT is applied to the retina photograph to obtain its high-high (HH) image subband. Then, a further decomposition by DWT is applied to the HH image subband of the previous step to obtain HH*. Finally, statistical features are computed from HH*. The support vector machines (SVM) are employed to classify normal versus abnormal images using leave-one-out cross-validation method (LOOM). The simulation results show strong evidence of the effectiveness of features extracted from HH* than features extracted from HH. Thus, they are in accordance with our previous work where our approach was applied to mammograms. In summary, our methodology based on a further analysis of high frequency images using DWT helps extracting suitable features for automatic classification of normal and abnormal retina digital images.
