Notes on Recognizing Echinocyte by the Top-Hat Transform
In diagnostic of hematology, one of a most important informations is to infer about echinocyte presence. The top-hat transform and its application on echinocyte detection were briefly introducted in . This paper suggests a new improvement based on random method to reduce number of computation for above purpose. We explain the relation between an upper bound of number of the blood cells to perform top-hat transform and number of echinocyte in image.
