Image processing in the biomedical sciences
Review articleOpen access

AbstractA survey of current research and development activities in the automated analysis of biomedical images discusses the application of computer techniques to the extraction of information from photographs, x-ray films, and images on microscope slides. Accomplishments in the primary areas of endeavor include the analysis of chromosomes, the differentiation of white blood cells, the interpretation of radiographic images, and other areas of investigation. The limitations and problems encountered in the biomedical application of pattern recognition techniques are also discussed. Existing and potential value of utilizing automated image processing in biomedical investigations and medical practice are considered in terms of increasing analytic capability as well as simply quantifying biomedical data which occurs in visual form.
