Glaucoma classification using a polynomial-driven deep learning approach

Krishna Santosh Naidana, Soubhagya Sankar Barpanda


In this paper, a deep learning-based multi-stage polynomial driven glaucoma classification-net (PDGC-Net) has been proposed for glaucoma identification through retinal images. The proposed approach begins with retinal image pu[1]rification by noise estimation and reduction. Noise has been estimated using a polynomial coefficient-based approach. Images are classified using PDGC-Net, whose polynomial indeterminate representative blocks are designed using new convolutional neural networks (CNN) architectures. The performance of PDGC[1]Net has been observed on the ACRIMA, ORIGA, and retinal image database for optic nerve evaluation (RIM-ONE) datasets. The experimentation is carried out on noisy and denoised images separately, and PDGC-Net has achieved 96% to 98% and 98% to 100% accuracy ranges, respectively. The model’s elasticity is tested with various stages of PDGC-Net. The quantitative PDGC-Net perfor[1]mance analysis is done with state-of-the-art CNN models. The proposed model’s performance has been proven and could be an effective aid to ophthalmologists for glaucoma screening (GS).
