Paper Abstract

For more than twenty five years it has been attempted to resolve the automated analysis of human chromosomes by machines. In this review about the application of image analysis techniques it will be tried to give a global overview about some important image proces sing and analysis steps in the automated chromosome analysis. The software is included into the commercially available slidebased analysis system SSCAN for IBMPC compatible computers. Chromosome analysis systems have been developed because of the demand of cyto geneticists for a reliable and economic routine method in human cytogenetit 1 aboratories.
