In molecular pathology numerical chromosome aberrations have been found to be decisive for the prognosis of malignancy in tumours. The existence of such aberrations can be detected by interphase fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). The gain or loss of certain base sequences in the desoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) can be estimated by counting the number of… (More)
In this article we have proposed an integrated system for measurement of important features from 3D tissue images. We propose a segmentation technique, where we combine several methods to achieve a good degree of automation. Important histological and cytological three-dimensional features and strategies to measure them are described.
In this paper we present an application of deformable models for the segmentation of volumetric tissue images. The three-dimensional images are obtained using confocal microscope. The segmented images have been used for the quantitative analysis of the Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH) signals. An ellipsoidal surface initialized around the cell of… (More)
