Abstract

Malaria is still a threat and serious disease especially in the low income countries. Instead of the slow manual counting, an automated method of counting malaria cell should provide rapid diagnostic information to physician with online convenience. This paper proposes a circular Hough transform to detect and count the malaria cells among normal blood cells via using adaptive histogram equalization. The proposed method attains accurate and satisfying results in counting even the overlapped cells. Experimental evaluations show 96.04% average accuracy achieved for detecting malaria cells and 94.5% average accuracy for counting its ratio from the whole cells.
