Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) is a common disease inthe elderly and is currently the main cause of blindness in developed countries.Drusen are one of its risks factors, which are visible in a retinal examination. Itsquantitative analysis is important in the follow up of the ARMD. The authorshave previously developed two tools for semi-automatic and automatic drusenquantification. In this paper five tests performed on these tools are presentedand discussed in order to evaluate their accuracy, variability and repeatability.The statistical results show that the automatic tool is as accurate as the expertsin Drusen quantification, with the advantage of being a reproducible method.The semi-automatic quantification method, which was used by the experts forDrusen quantification, proved statistically to produce a high intra-observeragreement.
