Abstract
We present a data mining framework to cluster optic nerve images obtained by Confocal
Scanning Laser Tomography (CSLT) in normal subjects and patients with glaucoma.
We use self-organizing maps and expectation maximization methods to partition the
data into clusters that provide insights into potential sub-classification of glaucoma
based on morphological features. We conclude that our approach provides a first step
towards a better understanding of morphological features in optic nerve images
