Abstract

Diabetic macular edema is one of the leading causes of legal blindness worldwide. Early, and accessible, detection of ophthalmological diseases is especially important in developing countries, where there are major limitations to access to specialized medical diagnosis and treatment. Deep learning models, such as deep convolutional neural networks have shown great success in different computer vision tasks. In medical images they have been also applied with great success. The present paper presents a novel strategy based on convolutional neural networks to combine exudates localization and eye fundus images for automatic classification of diabetic macular edema as a support for diabetic retinopathy diagnosis.
