This thesis presents optical and computerbased
methods for the analysis of microscope specimens
that are in the form of thin sections that have been
mounted on standard glass slides.
Three methods are discussed whereby image
and photometric information can be obtained -
television scanning, microphotometric scanning and
micro-spectrophotometry. The limitations of these
methods are analysed and some representative results
are given.
The thresholding of digital image data with
the assistance of neighbourhood operators is examined,
with particular reference to the Laplacian and Gradient
A method for the statistical analysis of
tissue-section textures is presented and is shown to
be applicable the discrimination of two pathological
classes of human prostate tissue. The effectiveness
of the method is evaluated by the use of a computed
Mahalanobis distance for the various statistics used.
