This paper presents a new algorithm for the unsupervised segmentation of tissue images. It relies on using the spatial information of cytological tissue components. As opposed to the previous study, it does not only use this information in defining its homogeneity measures, but it also uses it in its region growing process. This algorithm has been implemented and tested. Its visual and quantitative results are compared with the previous study. The results show that the proposed segmentation algorithm is more robust in giving better accuracies with less number of segmented regions. © 2010 IEEE.

Object-oriented texture analysis for the unsupervised segmentation of biopsy images for cancer detection Tosun, A. B.; Kandemir, M.; Sokmensuer, C.; Gunduz Demir, C. (Elsevier BV, 2009-06)Staining methods routinely used in pathology lead to similar color distributions in the biologically different regions of histopathological images. This causes problems in image segmentation for the quantitative analysis ...
Quantification of SLIT-ROBO transcripts in hepatocellular carcinoma reveals two groups of genes with coordinate expression Avci, M. E.; Konu, O.; Yagci, T. (BioMed Central, 2008)Background: SLIT-ROBO families of proteins mediate axon pathfinding and their expression is not solely confined to nervous system. Aberrant expression of SLIT-ROBO genes was repeatedly shown in a wide variety of cancers, ...
