Abstract

A system based on the use of two artificial neural networks (ANNs) to determine the location of the scleral spur of the human eye in ocular images generated by an ultrasound biomicroscopy is presented in this paper. The two ANNs establish a relationship between the distance of four manually placed landmarks in an ocular image with the coordinates of the scleral spur. The latter coordinates are generated by the expert knowledge of a subject matter specialist. Trained ANNs that generate good results for scleral spur location are incorporated into a software system. Statistical indicators and results yield an efficiency performance above 95%.
