Human tongue is one of the important organs of the body, which carries abound of information of the health status. Among the various information on tongue, color is the most important factor. Most existing methods carry out pixel-wise or RGB color space classification in a tongue image captured with color CCD cameras. However, these conversional methods(More)
Among the parts of the human tongue surface, the sublingual vein is one of the most important ones which may have pathological relationship with some diseases. To analyze this information quantitatively, one primitive work is to extract sublingual veins accurately from tongue body. In this paper, a hyperspectral tongue imaging system instead of a digital(More)
Leukocyte cells identification is one of the most frequently performed blood tests and plays an important role in the diagnosis of diseases. The quantitative observation of leukocyte cells is often complemented by morphological analysis in both research and clinical condition. Different from the traditional leukocyte cells morphometry methods, a molecular(More)
A molecular hyperspectral imaging (MHI) system was developed to evaluate the protective effects of erythropoietin (EPO) on early diabetic retinopathy in rats. The system was used to capture hyperspectral images of rat retinal sections selected from three groups: normal control, diabetic, and EPO. Three biochemical parameters were defined, namely, the(More)
