The Diagnosis Of Diabetic Retinopathy By Means Of Transfer Learning And Fine-Tuned Dense Layer Pipeline
Keywords:CNN, Transfer Learning, Fine-Tuning
Diabetes is a global disease that occurs when the body is disabled pancreas to secrete insulin to convert the sugar to power in the blood. As a result, some tiny blood vessels on the part of the body, such as the eyes, are affected by high sugar and cause blocking blood flow in the vessels, which is called diabetic retinopathy. This disease may lead to permanent blindness due to the growth of new vessels in the back of the retina causing it to detach from the eyes. In 2016, 387 million people were diagnosed with Diabetic retinopathy, and the number is growing yearly, and the old detection approach becomes worse. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to computerize the old method of detecting different classes of DR from 0-4 according to severity by given fundus images. The method is to construct a fine-tuned deep learning model based on transfer learning with dense layers. The used models here are InceptionV3, VGG16, and ResNet50 with a sharpening filter. Subsequently, InceptionV3 has achieved 94% as the highest accuracy among other models.
