Over the past decade, dramatic increases in computational power and improvement in image analysis algorithms have allowed the development of powerful computer-assisted analytical approaches to radiological data. With the recent advent of whole slide digital scanners, tissue histopathology slides can now be digitized and stored in digital image form.(More)
Diagnosis of recurrent miscarriage due to abnormally high number of uterine natural killer (uNK) cells has recently been made possible by a protocol devised by Quenby et al. Hum Reprod 2009;24(1):45-54. The diagnosis involves detection and counting of stromal and uNK cell nuclei in endometrial biopsy slides immunohistochemically stained with haematoxylin(More)
Computer aided diagnosis (CAD) is aimed at supporting the pathologists in their diagnosis. In this paper, we present an algorithm for texture-based classification of colon tissue patterns. In this method, a single band is selected from its hy-perspectral cube and spatial analysis is performed using circular local binary pattern (CLBP) features. A novel(More)
The inherent complexity and non-homogeneity of texture makes classification in medical image analysis a challenging task. In this paper, we propose a combined approach for meningioma subtype classification using subband texture (macro) features and micro-texture features. These are captured using the Adaptive Wavelet Packet Transform (ADWPT) and Local(More)
Diagnosis and cure of colon cancer can be improved by efficiently classifying the colon tissue cells from biopsy slides into normal and malignant classes. This paper presents the classification of hyperspectral colon tissue cells using morphology of gland nuclei of cells. The application of hyper-spectral imaging techniques in medical image analysis is a(More)
—Histopathology diagnosis is based on visual examination of the morphology of histological sections under a microscope. With the increasing popularity of digital slide scanners, decision support systems based on the analysis of digital pathology images are in high demand. However, computerised decision support systems are fraught with problems that stem(More)
In this paper, we present a novel algorithm for restoration of noisy video sequences. A video sequence is first transformed into an optimal 3D wavelet domain using basis functions adapted to the contents of the sequence. Assuming that all the major spatiotemporal frequency phenomena present in the sequence produce high amplitude transform coefficients , a(More)
The classification of normal and malginant colon tissue cells is crucial to the diagnosis of colon cancer in humans. Given the right set of feature vectors, Support Vector Machines (SVMs) have been shown to perform reasonably well for the classification [4, 13]. In this paper, we address the following question: how does the choice of a kernel function and(More)
The proliferative activity of breast tumors, which is routinely estimated by counting of mitotic figures in hematoxylin and eosin stained histology sections, is considered to be one of the most important prognostic markers. However, mitosis counting is laborious, subjective and may suffer from low inter-observer agreement. With the wider acceptance of whole(More)
