Paper Abstract

Analysis of the large amounts of image data obtainable from very-high-speed scanning laser microscopes places severe demands on computer software and hardware architectures. The automated calculation of features over entire images can provide quantitative data useful to a pathologist who must make a diagnosis. A program that identifies objects of diagnostic interest in an image must utilize a model of the image. An expert system is an effective method for building abstract models of object hierarchies and for utilizing heuristic information. In this paper we discuss a composite approach to image understanding and assessment that utilizes an expert system to control a set of image processing functions for the recognition of various objects in an image.
