Author Affiliations +
Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) is one of the most dominant diseases across the globe which causes blindness. In this manuscript, we have probed tissue multifractality in order to identify the submicron level changes in medium refractive indices due to progress of diabetic retinopathy from mild to severe stages. Hence the quantification of multifractal parameters like Hurst exponent (measurement of correlation) and width of singularity (measurement of heterogeneity) have been executed. As we proceed from healthy to different stages (mild, moderate and severe) of diabetic retinopathy, there are decrement of Hurst exponent value, whereas, width of singularity spectrum increases. In general, the use of multifractal analysis on in vivo diabetic retinopathy images lead to a diagnostic modality as a potential statistical biomarker.
