Abstract

HE stain images are widely used in medical diagnosis and often considered a gold standard for histology and pathology laboratories. A proper analysis is needed to have a critical decision about the status of the diagnosis of the concerned patient. Segmentation is always considered as an advanced stage of image analysis where objects of similar properties are put in one segment. But segmentation of HE stain images is not an easy task as these images involve a high level of fuzziness with them mainly along the boundary edges. So, traditional techniques like hard clustering techniques are not suitable for segmenting these images. So, a new approach is proposed in this chapter to deal with this problem. The proposed approach is based on type-2 fuzzy set and is new. The experimental results prove the superiority of the proposed technique.
