Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR PROCESSING AN IMAGE OF A BIOLOGICAL SPECIMEN
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE TRAITEMENT D'UNE IMAGE D'UN ÉCHANTILLON BIOLOGIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Components, e.g., background, cytoplasm, nucleus and nucleolus, of a biological specimen are identified using multi-wavelength analysis. Specimen components, such as nucleoli, are selected, and a determination is made whether cells having nucleoli are cancer cells or regular repair cells based on one or more physical characteristics of the identified component. The physical characteristics can be one or more of a shape, size, texture and gray value.
(FR)Dans la présente invention, on identifie par analyse multi-longueurs d'onde les constituants d'un échantillon biologique tels que le protoplasme, le cytoplasme, le noyau et le nucléole. Des constituants de l'échantillon, tels que des nucléoles, sont sélectionnés et il est déterminé si des cellules ayant des noyaux sont des cellules cancéreuses ou des cellules de réparation ordinaires sur la base d'au moins une caractéristique physique du constituant identifié. Les caractéristiques physiques peuvent être au moins une des caractéristiques suivantes: la forme, la taille, la texture et la valeur de gris.
