The firefly algorithm is a powerful optimization method inspired by the flashing behavior of fireflies. In our work on computer aided breast cancer diagnosis we met a problem of automatic marking of nuclei. Our system is based on analysis of microscopic images of fine needle biopsy material. The task of the system is to identify benign and malignant lesions (optionally it can also distinguish fibroadenoma). For this purpose it extracts nuclei from cytological images in segmentation phase, then… Expand
