Paper Abstract

Chromosome image segmentation is an important step toward automatic karyotyping that involves visualization and interpretation of chromosomes. In this paper, we analyze the characteristics of chromosome images that can be effectively used for segmenting chromosomes and can be efficiently extracted on the Lockheed-Martin PAL parallel image processor. We design and implement a parallel algorithm that uses local features to split touching chromosomes.
