Discrete Cosine Transform Based Gradient Vector Flow Active Contours-A Suitable Tool for Chromosome Image Classification

A. Prabhu Britto and G. Ravindran


In this study, the suitability of the Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) based Gradient Vector Flow (GVF) Active Contour as a suitable tool for Chromosome image classification is assessed. The DCT based GVF active contour has been established as an efficient tool for chromosome image segmentation in chromosome spread images. From the performance of DCT based GVF active contour in chromosome segmentation, insight has been obtained that recommends the same technique as a chromosome image classification tool. This study discusses and establishes that DCT based GVF active contour can be used as a suitable tool for chromosome image classification.
