  1. 1. Segmentation of White Blood Cells Using Deep Learning

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematik LTH

    Author : Sophia Grimmeiss Grahm; Desiré Nilsson; [2019]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The white blood cell count and differential is an important part of diagnosing a number of medical conditions. Instead of doing this by manual microscopy, CellaVision’s technology has automated the process of finding and classifying white blood cells. To support a diagnosis it is desired that the system can produce cytoplasm-to-nucleus-ratio. READ MORE
