In a full automatic cervical cytology screening process, one of the essential steps is the segmentation of cervical nuclei. Despite some progress, there is a need to improve sensitivity, speed, level of automation, and to reduce non-cellular artifacts. This paper presents a practical nuclei segmentation algorithm for solving these problems. The proposed approach first preprocess the V channel image from the HSV color space thus allowing accentuating the contrast between nuclei/leukocyte and… CONTINUE READING
