Detection of Cholesterol Levels through Eye Image Based on HOG and ANN
Cholesterol is fat in the blood that is needed for the formation of hormones and new cells. Normal cholesterol levels should be less than 200 mg / dL, but if above 240 mg / dL will be at high risk of stroke and coronary heart disease. This study produced a system that can detect a person’s cholesterol levels through eye images using iridology and image processing methods. Eye images obtained from clinical laboratory patients were 120 eye images. The system process begins with processing eye images using the method of cropping, resizing, and segmentation. Feature extraction method uses Histogram of Oriented Gradients (HOG), and classification using Artificial Neural Network (ANN). The system can detect cholesterol levels with three levels of classification, namely normal, at high risk of cholesterol, and high cholesterol with an accuracy rate of 93% and computing time of 0.0862 seconds.
