Paper Abstract

A color texture or image can be seen as a. hierar chical imbrication of primitives of different sizes, shapes, colors and textures. To characterize it, we need thus to define both a color image model and a. featuring approach. A color metric is defined from which a. global measure (strength) and a local operator are derived. The local operator is used as an homogeneity criteria in the framework of a quadtree description of cell images, where a given color region is characterized by its strength. Some texture features are computed over the q-images, which correspond merely to the extension of a classical featuring approach. The discriminatory powers of the classical and extended parameters are finally compared on a set of bone marrow cells.
