The commonly used nomenclature for classifying cervical cells was expanded to include more classes, reflecting finer gradations of disease-related morphologic changes. Using a set of subjective visual criteria developed for this purpose, we visually classified 7,000 randomly selected cells and then subjected them to morphologic measurement by digital image analysis. Several of the measurements showed statistically significant differences among all the cell classes, indicating that it is… Expand
Karyometry of pseudostratified, metaplastic and dysplastic nasal epithelium by morphometry and stereology. 1. A general model for automated image analysis of epithelia.
A mathematical model is proposed to describe an aggregate of separate parallel anisotropic prolate spheroids of variable size and eccentricity suitable for the study of epithelial nuclei, and should be applicable to many other types of functionally or pathologically altered epithelia, particularly for cancer and precancer screenings.

Karyometry of pseudostratified, metaplastic and dysplastic nasal epithelium by morphometry and stereology. 2. Automated image analysis (IBAS) of the basal layer of nickel workers.
A mathematical model for the stereological analysis of parallel-oriented, spheroidal nuclei has been applied to the basal layers of respiratory, metaplastic and dysplastic nasal epithelia and adds some valuable objective criteria to those used in classical histopathological grading. Expand
Image analysis of the nuclear characteristics of emerin protein and the correlation with nuclear grooves and intranuclear cytoplasmic inclusions in lung adenocarcinoma
This study is the first to report that the low expression of emerin in cancer cell results in an oval shape of nuclei and nuclear enlargement in clinical samples, indicating the usefulness of WSI and IA for pathological specimen analysis. Expand
Karyometry by automated image analysis. Application to precancerous lesions.
Karyometric studies on precancerous lesions may help to determine which lesions should be considered as possible premalignancies, and a new sphere unfolding model has been used on liver sections from Farber-protocol-treated rats. Expand
Nuclear features of infiltrating urothelial carcinoma are distinguished from low-grade noninvasive papillary urothelial carcinoma by image analysis
The results of the present study suggest that IA in combination with WSI may be a beneficial tool for evaluating morphometric characteristics and performing semi-quantitative analysis of IHC. Expand
Automated image processing for cells and tissue
This chapter not only reviews the current status of the automation of image analysis in cytology and histology, but also presents a historical account of this field extending from its inception. Expand
