Abstract

We propose a novel unstained cell detection algorithm based on unsupervised learning. The algorithm utilizes the scale invariant feature transform (SIFT), a self-labeling algorithm, and two clustering steps in order to achieve high performance in terms of time and detection accuracy. Unstained cell imaging is dominated by phase contrast and bright field microscopy. Therefore, the algorithm was assessed on images acquired using these two modalities. Five cell lines having in total 37 images and 7250 cells were considered for the evaluation: CHO, L929, Sf21, HeLa, and Bovine cells. The obtained F-measures were between 85.1 and 89.5. Compared to the state-of-the-art, the algorithm achieves very close F-measure to the supervised approaches in much less time.
