This paper presents an automatic extraction method for apoptotic cells from video microscopy images. Since the apoptosis, which is called cell death, is well-known to be related with various disease. Therefore, several researchers try to reveal its mechanism and often analyze the images acquired under the video microscopes. However, the performance of software used in the image analysis is not enough for the auto-detection of the apoptotic cells, and thus the researchers have to manually detect the apoptotic cells from the images. Therefore, this paper proposes a method to automatically detect the apoptotic cells based on their inherent shape features.
