Thin blood film is used to know type and phase of the malaria parasite, but which is widely used in Indonesia is the thick blood film. Therefore we need a method that can identify parasites in thick blood film image with a high percentage of accuracy. This research aims to establish a more objective classification system and reduce the subjective factors of medical personnel in diagnosing the type of malaria parasite include its phase. It has three main stages, there are preprocessing, feature… CONTINUE READING
