|Abstract:||This paper compares two manual measurement techniques for measuring retinal vessel segment widths: the kick-points technique and the edge marking technique. An image set of 164 clear, high-resolution segments was used. The kick-points approach uses kick points marked by observers along interpolated cross-sectional intensity profile graphs; the edge marking method allows observers to nominate the edges on a zoomed-up image, and interpolates edge positions. The edgemarking method provides more precise measurements than the kick-points method, but these are subject to more inter-observer variability; we speculate that this result is due to differing observer perceptions of the edge location.|
