This paper describes a part of current research work on counting dead and live hepatocytes (liver cells) in cultures from microscopic images. The requirement of the work is to develop an automatic cell counting process that is simple, fast, and achieves high level of count accuracy. Cells in the acquired images are difficult to identify due to low contrast, uneven illumination, gray intensity variations within a cell, irregular cell shapes. For automatic counting, our cell images undergo three… CONTINUE READING
