Abstract

Morphological changes in the iris are one of the major causes of angle-closure glaucoma, and an anteriorly-bowed iris may be further associated with greater risk of disease progression from primary angle-closure suspect (PACS) to chronic primary angle-closure glaucoma (CPCAG). In consequence, the automated detection of abnormalities in the iris region is of great importance in the management of glaucoma. In this paper, we present a new method for the extraction of the iris region by using a local phase tensor-based curvilinear structure enhancement method, and apply it to anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT) imagery in the presence of occludable iridocorneal angle. The proposed method is evaluated across a dataset of 200 anterior chamber angle (ACA) images, and the experimental results show that the proposed method outperforms existing state-of-the-art method in applicability, effectiveness, and accuracy.
