This paper proposes a novel method for segmenting microscope images of schisotsomiasis. Schistosomiasis is a parasitic disease with a global impact second only to malaria. Automated analysis of the parasite’s reaction to drug therapy enables high-throughput drug discovery. These reactions take the form of phenotypic changes that are currently evaluated(More)
In this article is compared the ability of several morphological operators to improve OCR performance when used as preprocessing filters. An experiment on binary and greyscale images using the Tesseract OCR engine and morphological filters acting in complex, graph and vertex spaces has thus been performed and results in a good overall performance of complex(More)
Studying discrete space representations has recently lead to the development of novel morphological operators. To date, there has been no study evaluating the performances of those novel operators with respect to a specific application. This article compares the capability of several morphological operators, both old and new, to improve OCR performance when(More)
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a leading cause of death in the United States, yet even at risk or diagnosed patients misunderstand COPD and its consequences for their quality of life and mortality. This study explored how patients conceptualize the causes, symptoms, consequences, treatment, and risk for developing COPD. The study consisted(More)
