Normal and abnormal red blood cell recognition using image processing

Hajara Aliyu Abdulkarim, Rubita Sudirman, Mohd Azhar Abdul Razak


In medical field, the recognition of red blood cells (RBC) are used as an indicator to detect the type of diseases such as anaemia, malaria and leukaemia etc. The problems using manual detection of normal and abnormal RBCs under the microscope is tend to give inaccurate result and errors. This paper proposed a method to recognize the normal and abnormal shaped RBCs image by using Form Factor as feature descriptor. Detecting normal cells of RBCs indicate a healthy patient and abnormal cells indicate presence of disease. And is very important in medical field to detect abnormal condition in early stage because it saves and protects human lives. The patients waiting time for blood test is more because the time taking to generate the result of the patient is high due to high demand and less equipment this method is used in order to improve the accuracy of the existing one and 94% accuracy was achieved in the detection.
