Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A visual-input computer system was used to automatically locate and perform measurements with high accuracy on single cells from microscopic slides. The nuclear radius, irregularity, area, and density of normal and malignant cells were automatically measured. These studies agreed with hand measurements and showed differences between normal and malignant cervical cells on Papanicolaou smears.
