Segmentation of Crescent Shape Blood Cells using Circular Hough Transform


In this paper, we presented a semi-automated tool to analyze red blood cells. We utilized circular Hough transform for circular cells detection. In a light micrograph, the red blood cells may appear in a crescent shape that known as Sicklecell. Thus, we proposed a technique to detect this shape and demonstrated its capability. Overall, our tool recorded 92% of accuracy with 70% and 72% of sensitivity and specificity respectively. Despite the promising performance, several limitations must be overcome and has been highlighted in the conclusions.
