LEISHMANIA PARASITE IN MICROSCOPIC IMAGES

LEISHMANIA PARASITE IN MICROSCOPIC IMAGES

Visceral leishmaniasis is a parasitic disease that affects liver, spleen and the bone marrow. According to World Health Organization report, definitive diagnosis is possible just by direct observation of leishman body in the microscopic image taken from bone marrow samples.
In this study، leishman bodies existed in microscopic images taken from bone marrow samples of patients with visceral leishmaniasis underwent automatic-segmentatio using Otsu and Savoulla thresholding methods besides K-means clustering method. For data acquisition، a digital camera (Sony DSC-H9) coupled on an optical microscope (Olampus-CH40RF200) were used and 45 data were captured for automatic Automatic Boundary Extraction of Leishman Bodies.
The following paper is in this regard (please cite the paper if you used this dataset):
