In this paper, a novel method for automated diagnosis of cervical cancer by extracting cytoplasm and nuclei from cervical cytology images is described. The background is removed by preprocessing methods like Edge sharpening and Adaptive Histogram Equalization. Fuzzy thresholding and Active contours are used for extracting the region of interest containing(More)
