IMAGE SEGMENTATION TO EVALUATE ISLETS OF LANGHERANS

Abstract

This contribution deals with an unsupervised system to process digital photomicrographs in order to locate and analyze islets of Langherans in human pancreases. The experiment has been conducted on real data and, though we are still going to complete the evaluation of the whole method, we expect to define a set of proper features (e.g. area, perimeter, fractal dimension, shape complexity, texture and entropy) useful for a fast and reliable counting of healthy cells. In particular, this research aims to measure the advisability of a possible implantation in patients affected by type 1 diabetes mellitus.
