Current estimation methods for band level resolutions of human chromosome images in cytogenetic laboratories are time consuming and required experienced specialists to manually perform. [...] Key Method The intensity gradient profile and sign profile of chromosome images are utilized to count the number of bands. Then band level resolutions of chromosome images are classified into three categories: 400-, 500-, and 550-band levels by using k-nearest neighbor algorithm. The experimental results show the accuracy…Expand
