Abstract : Introduction of computers and image analysis systems to quantify the assessment of living cells for prognosis and diagnosis is gaining momentum. It also aims at relieving the operator from the tedium of microscopic observation and reducing operator bias and human error. This paper discusses the design and configuration of an interactive image analysis system built indigenounsly for cell analysis and classification. It also discusses the progress made in the diagnosis of cervical cancer and in the prognosis of breast cancer using computerised interactive morphometry.
