This paper describes the Digital Fundus Image Diagnostic System, a computerized image analysis system being developed to aid a human analyst, or grader, in the labeling and quantification of pathologic lesions indicative of background diabetic retinopathy. The grader uses a computer workstation to perform the analysis on a digitized color image of the ocular fundus (retina). The goal of the system is to provide precise quantitative measures of pathologic lesions (size, location, number and color), and place them in a computer database to be used for clinical records and for epidemiological studies.
