Developing segmentation techniques for overlapping cells has become a major hurdle for automated analysis of cervical cells. In this paper, an automated three-stage segmentation approach to segment the nucleus and cytoplasm of each overlapping cell is described. First, superpixel clustering is conducted to segment the image into small coherent clusters that(More)
Recently, the literature has witnessed an increasing interest in the study of medical image watermarking and recovery techniques. In this article, a novel image tamper localization and recovery technique for medical image authentication is proposed. The sparse coding of the Electronic Patient Record (EPR) and the reshaped region of Interest (ROI) is(More)
Accurate cell segmentation is an important and long-standing challenge in biomedical image analysis due to large variations in shape and boundary ambiguity. In this paper, we present a segmentation framework for partially overlapping cervical cells. The proposed method starts by cellular clump estimation with morphological reconstruction. Subsequently, the(More)
Designing a single automatic and accurate segmentation approach for different classes of white blood cells is a challenging task. This paper presents a fully automated segmentation framework to segment both nuclei and cytoplasm of five major classes of white blood cells in the peripheral blood smears based on color and texture enhancement. Particularly, a(More)
Online image analysis is used in a wide variety of applications. Edge detection is a fundamental tool used to obtain features of objects as a prerequisite step to object segmentation. This paper presents a simple and relatively fast online edge detection algorithm based on second derivative. The proposed edge detector is less sensitive to noise and may be(More)
