This study explores the use of fractal analysis in the numerical description of chromatin appearance in breast cytology. Images of nuclei from fine-needle aspiration biopsies of the breast are characterized in terms of their Minkowski and spectral fractal dimensions, for 19 patients with benign epithelial cell lesions and 22 with invasive ductal carcinomas. Chromatin appearance in breast epithelial cell nuclear images is demonstrated to be fractal, suggesting that the three-dimensional… CONTINUE READING
