  • Abstract

    Counting of red blood cells (RBCs) in microscope blood cell images, can give the pathologists valuable information regarding various hematological disorders, like anemia, leukemia,....etc. in several animal species, in this paper, an automated vision system has been developed which is capable of counting of red blood cells, in blood samples by applying different algorithms, based on red blood cellshape, the difference in the red blood cell shape of animal species make it difficult to use a one algorithm, therefore, for each animal species used specific algorithm which was capable of counting of RBCs effectively.
