A Survey on Performance Evaluation of Object Detection Techniques in Digital Image Processing
J. Komala Lakshmi,M. Punithavalli
International Journal of Computer Science Issues , 2010,
Abstract: In digital image processing , the performance evaluation means the analysis of parameters that improves the execution of the proposed system there by producing the optimized result. The image is defined as a Scene consists of objects of interest. To understand the contents of the image , one should know the objects that are located in the image. The shape of the object is a binary image representing the extent of the object. In Digital Image processing the shapes are represented and described in various methods .Shape representation method results in a non numeric representation of the original shape (e.g.) a graph. So that the important characteristics of the shape are preserved. The shape description refers to the methods that result in a numeric descriptor of the shape and is a step subsequent to shape representation .Skeletons are one such shape descriptors. The skeleton of a two-dimensional object is a transformation of the shape object into a one dimensional line introducing skeleton shape descriptors. Many operations like shape representation and deformation can be performed more efficiently on the skeleton than on the full object, as skeleton is simpler than the original object. The parameters such as thresholds, bounds and weights have to be tuned for the successful performance of the object recognition system. This paper provides an overview of estimating the parameters for performance evaluation of the object detection techniques, and a survey of Performance evaluation of junction detection schemes in digital image processing.

Leonardo Electronic Journal of Practices and Technologies , 2012,
Abstract: Recently, image processing techniques are widely used in several medical areas for image improvement in earlier detection and treatment stages, where the time factor is very important to discover the abnormality issues in target images, especially in various cancer tumours such as lung cancer, breast cancer, etc. Image quality and accuracy is the core factors of this research, image quality assessment as well as improvement are depending on the enhancement stage where low pre-processing techniques is used based on Gabor filter within Gaussian rules. Following the segmentation principles, an enhanced region of the object of interest that is used as a basic foundation of feature extraction is obtained. Relying on general features, a normality comparison is made. In this research, the main detected features for accurate images comparison are pixels percentage and mask-labelling.
Histopathological Image Analysis Using Image Processing Techniques: An Overview  [PDF]
A. D. Belsare,M. M. Mushrif
Signal & Image Processing , 2012,
Abstract: This paper reviews computer assisted histopathology image analysis for cancer detection and classification. Histopathology refers to the examination of invasive or less invasive biopsy sample by a pathologist under microscope for locating, analyzing and classifying most of the diseases like cancer. The analysis of histoapthological image is done manually by the pathologist to detect disease which leads to subjective diagnosis of sample and varies with level of expertise of examiner. The pathologist examine the tissue structure, distribution of cells in tissue, regularities of cell shapes and determine benign and malignancy in image. This is very time consuming and more prone to intra and inter observer variability. To overcome this difficulty a computer assisted image analysis is needed for quantitative diagnosis oftissue. In this paper we reviews and summarize the applications of digital image processing techniquesfor histology image analysis mainly to cover segmentation and disease classification methods.
