Paper Abstract

This paper describes an efficient method of segmenting cell nuclei from complex scenes based upon the use of adaptive region growing in conjuction with nucleus-specific filters. Results of segmenting potentially abnormal (cancer or neoplastic) cell nuclei in Papanicolaou smears from 0.8 square micrometers resolution images are also presented.
