Abstract

Cancer of blood-forming tissues is called Leukemia. This disease hinders the body's ability to fight infection. Leukemia can be categorized into many types. Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) and Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) are the two main types. The blood cells' growth and bone marrow are affected by AML. Collection of myeloid blasts in the bone marrow is one of the main characteristics of AML. In this research, a novel method is analyzed to detect the presence of AML. The paper proposes a technique that automatically detects and segments the nucleus from white blood cells (WBCs) in the microscopic blood smear images. Segmentation and clustering is done using a K-Means algorithm, while classification is done using Support Vector Machine (SVM) with feature reduction.
