    Abstract

    A method classifying objects man image as respective arterial or venous vessels comprising: identifying pixels of the said modified image which are located on a line object, determining which of the said image points is associated with crossing point or a bifurcation of the respective line object, wherein a crossing point is represented by an image point which is the intersection of four line segments, performing a matching operation on pairs of said line segments for each said crossing point, to determine the path of blood vessels in the image, thereby classifying the line objects in the original image into two arbitrary sets, and thereafter designating one of the sets as representing venous structure, the other of the sets as representing arterial structure, depending on one or more of the following criteria: (a) complexity of structure; (b) average density; (c) average width; (d) tortuosity; (e) vessel length. Furthermore methods for detecting size and positions of features of eye fundus images.
