Abstract

Malaria is disease which is affecting millions of people and it is generally detected by examining the Red Blood Corpuscles (RBC) manually using microscope. However, the manual microscopic approach is time consuming, and lack of experts in the rural area, makes diagnosis of malaria very challenging one. The reported image processing approch extent the modern digital facilities to address the demand of automation, by developing a computerised facility for the detection of malaria using image processing technique. And this technological development could be a significant part of a modern digital tele-pathology. Proposed technology helps diagnose through the digital slide. Here the screening of microscopic images of a blood sample is achieved with color image processing approach that involves Red blood corpuscles (RBC) Segmentation, color space conversion, segmentation of the parasite, feature extraction and classification of malarial sample. The presented work detects plasmodium parasites from leishman stained microscopic blood images which in turn support pathologists for faster diagnosis. Neural network and rule based classifiers were used for the classification of blood images. The images belonging to malarial and non-malarial classes.
