We introduce a nonlocal discrete regularization framework on weighted graphs of the arbitrary topologies for image and manifold processing. The approach considers the problem as a variational one, which consists of minimizing a weighted sum of two energy terms: a regularization one that uses a discrete weighted -Dirichlet energy and an approximation one.(More)
In this paper, we present a graph-based multi-resolution approach for mitosis extraction in breast cancer histological whole slide images. The proposed segmentation uses a multi-resolution approach which reproduces the slide examination done by a pathologist. Each resolution level is analyzed with a focus of attention resulting from a coarser resolution(More)
Pattern Recognition ()-Keywords: Cytological and histological images Pathology Weighted graphs Image processing tools Discrete regularization Fast image processing Automatic and interactive segmentation schemes We propose a framework of graph-based tools for the segmentation of microscopic cellular images. This framework is based on an object oriented(More)
In this paper, we describe a new scheme to color image segmentation which is based on supervised pixel classification methods. Using color pixel classification alone does not extract accurately enough color regions, so we suggest to use a strategy based on four steps in different color spaces: simplification, pixel classification, marker extraction and(More)
A novel method for color image segmentation is proposed in this paper. The method is based on the segmentation of each color plane independently using a watershed based thresholding of the plane histograms. The segmentation maps obtained for each color plane are fused together according to a fusion operator taking into account a concordance of the labels of(More)
The processing of color images has become a major field of interest, however the direct extension of their gray scale counterparts is not always possible since there is no natural ordering of color vectors. Mathematical morphology has to face with this problem since it needs a complete lattice which is generally based on a conditional ordering. We propose(More)

We propose a nonlinear multiscale decomposition of signals defined on the vertex set of a general weighted graph. This decomposition is inspired by the hierarchical multiscale (BV,L 2) decomposition of Tadmor, Nezzar, and Vese (Multiscale Model. Simul. 2(4):554–579, 2004). We find the decomposition by iterative regularization using a graph variant of the(More)
Microscopic cellular image segmentation schemes must be efficient for reliable analysis and fast to process huge quantity of images. Recent studies have focused on improving segmentation quality. Several segmentation schemes have good quality but processing time is too expensive to deal with a great number of images per day. For segmentation schemes based(More)
In this paper, we propose two major improvements to the exemplar-based image inpainting algorithm, initially formulated by Criminisi et al. [1]. First, we introduce a structure-tensor-based data-term for a better selection of pixel candidates to fill in based on priority. Then, we propose a new lookup heuristic in order to locate the best source patches to(More)
