- This paper presents an automatic blood vessel segmentation method for retinal images. Our method integrates the dual-tree complex wavelet transform (DT-CWT) with the graph-based algorithm. The DT-CWT is used to construct the multi-scale features for each pixel, which is directionally selective and robust to noise. The graph-based algorithm is exploited to classify each pixel as vessel or non-vessel. Our method is validated on the publicly available DRIVE database, and compared with the state-of-the-art algorithms
