This paper presents preliminary results for the classification of Pap Smear cell nuclei, using gray level co-occurrence matrix (GLCM) textural features. We outline a method of nuclear segmentation using fast morphological gray-scale transforms. For each segmented nucleus, features derived from a modified form of the GLCM are extracted over several angle and distance measures. Linear discriminant analysis is performed on these features to reduce the dimensionality of the feature space, and a classifier with hyper-quadric decision surface is implemented to classify a small set of normal and abnormal cell nuclei. Using 2 features, we achieve a misclassification rate of 3.3% on a data set of 61 cells
