Tutorial: Extracting Serous Cell Nucleus



I. Objective

This is a biological application in the context of cancer screening. The purpose is to assist cytotechnologists in finding suspect or abnormal cells from the analysis of serous cytology images. The typical image processing goal is to locate each cell in an image by segmenting images into regions of individual cells. These regions are then fed into a classifier which has been trained to identify the cellular types (especially cancer cells).

  1. Illumination correction
