Screening of Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) with timely treatment prevents blindness. Several researchers have focused their work on the development of computeraided lesion-specific detectors. Combining detectors is a complex task as frequently the detectors have different properties and constraints and are not designed under a unified framework. We extend our previous work for detecting DR lesions based on points of interest and visual words to include additional detectors for the most common DR

The combination methods show promising results and shed light on the possible advantages of combining complementary lesion detectors for the DR diagnosis problem.
