Seventy-three TUR-T biopsies from bladder carcinoma were evaluated regarding microvessel density, defined as microvessel number (nMVD) and cross-section endothelial cell area (aMVD). A semi-automatic and a newly developed, automatic image analysis technique were applied in immunostainings, performed according to an optimized staining protocol. In 12 cases a(More)
A new method for segmenting images of immunohistochemically stained cell nuclei is presented. The aim is to distinguish between cell nuclei with a positive staining reaction and other cell nuclei, and to make it possible to quantify the reaction. First, a new supervised algorithm for creating a pixel classifier is applied to an image that is typical for the(More)
PURPOSE To fully automate intra-abdominal (IAT) and total adipose tissue (TAT) segmentation in mice to replace tedious and subjective manual segmentation. MATERIALS AND METHODS A novel transform codes each voxel with the radius of the narrowest passage on the widest possible three-dimensional (3D) path to any voxel in the target object to select(More)
A method for quantification of images of immunohistochemically stained cell nuclei by computing area proportions is presented. The image is transformed by a principal component transform. The resulting first component image is used to segment the objects from the background using dynamic thresholding of the P2/A-histogram, where P2/A is a global roundness(More)
A fully automatic method for quantification of images of immunohistochemically stained cell nuclei by computing area proportions, is presented. Agarose embedded cultured fibroblasts were fixed, paraffin embedded and sectioned at 4 microm. They were then stained together with 4 microm sections of the test specimen obtained from bladder cancer material. A(More)
Rolling circle amplification (RCA) for generation of distinct fluorescent signals in situ relies upon the self-collapsing properties of single-stranded DNA in commonly used RCA-based methods. By introducing a cross-hybridizing DNA oligonucleotide during rolling circle amplification, we demonstrate that the fluorophore-labeled RCA products (RCPs) become(More)
An automatic method for quantification of images of microvessels by computing area proportions and number of objects is presented. The objects are segmented from the background using dynamic thresholding of the average component size histogram. To be able to count the objects, fragmented objects are connected, all objects are filled, and touching objects(More)
