Abstract

This paper presents a cancer stem cell detection method using region covariance and codifference method. It focuses on detection of Cancer Stem Cell (CSC) in microscopic images which are stained with CD13 marker. Features of CSC images are extracted by using both covariance method and its multiplication free version codifference method and these features are fed into a Support Vector Machine (SVM) for classification. Experimental results are presented.
