Diagnosis and monitoring of kidney diseases and transplants is supported by microscopic analysis of needle-core biopsy samples. The current methods of analysis allow for inconsistencies, bias, and inaccuracies. We propose image processing methods for automatic segmentation of the effective biopsy area (cortex and medulla) from digital images of renal biopsy(More)
