Indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) with HEp-2 cells has been used to detect antinuclear auto-antibodies (ANA) for diagnosing systemic autoimmune diseases. The aim of this study is to develop an automatic scheme to identify the fluorescence pattern of HEp-2 cell in the IIF images. By using the previously proposed two-staged segmentation method, the similarity-based watershed algorithm with marker techniques was performed to segment each fluorescence cell. Then the proposed classification method… CONTINUE READING
