An essential part of the diagnosis and treatment of leukemia is the visual examination of the patient's peripheral blood smear under the microscope. Morphological changes in the white blood cells are commonly used to determine the nature of the malignant cells, namely blasts. Manual techniques are labor intensive slow, subjected to error and costly. A computerized system can be used as an aiding tool for the specialist in order to improve and accelerate the morphological analysis process. This… CONTINUE READING
