A Linear, Pixel-specific Color Normalization Algorithm for Hematology Imaging

Rachel Lou, Rachel Lou, Thanh Le

Abstract

The automated cell recognition of hematology microscope images provides crucial information for the qualitative description of cell morphology and other quantitative applications in analyzing blood pathology. Computer-aided diagnostics and cell segmentation are invaluable tools to help reduce the cost of human labor and time. However, discrepancies in stain protocol and imaging hardware pose challenges to automated cell recognition; noise, blur, lighting contrast, and irregular coloration confound cell differentiation. In this study, we describe a linear pre-processing algorithm that addresses the color variation in hematology images. We qualitatively examine the image outputs and quantitatively assess the efficacy of the proposed algorithm by studying the performance of a cell detection model.
