Abstract

To carry out a visual examination for chromosome abnormalities, individual chromosome regions need to be determined in a subject image and classified into distinct chromosome types in advance. We have proposed a subregion based approach to improve this process. The proposed approach regards each chromosome region as a series of subregions and iterates searches for subregions in the subject image consecutively. To make this subregion based approach fit for practical use, in this paper, we propose an effective method of searching for subregions in chromosome images and present the results of subregion search experiments.
