Counting of Microscopic Cells Based on Grads Hough Transform


Article Preview

In order to improve the accuracy and efficiency of automatic counting of microscopic cells, the method based on the Hough transform has been proposed. And the standard Hough transform has been improved using image gradient information. Compared with the traditional counting methods based on mathematical morphology and boundary tracking tags, the accuracy of the counting accuracy has been greatly improved. The results show the accuracy and efficiency of counting of the microscopic cells based on grads Hough transform is improved.
