In medical field, the number of red blood cells (RBC) are used as an indicator to detect the type of diseases such as malaria, anemia, leukemia and etc. The problems using manual counting of RBC under the microscope is tend to give inaccurate result and errors. This paper proposed a method to count a total number of RBC in peripheral blood smear image by using circular Hough transform (CHT) method. The process involves preprocessing and segmentation a single cell image of RBC after cropping it… CONTINUE READING
