Preliminary approach for crypt detection in Inflammatory Bowel Disease

By Bassem Ben Cheikh, Philippe Bertheau and Daniel Racoceanu


Congrès sous l’égide de la Société Française de Génie Biologique et Médical (SFGBM).National audienceCrypt architecture is one of the most significant histological features used for the examination of colorectal biopsy specimens enabling clinical decisions in the investigation of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases. However , the architecture modelling remains a challenging problem leading to variability in reporting and subjectiv-ity in pathological examination. In this context, intestinal gland detection represent a necessary step before a clinical study of their architecture. This work presents a graph-based technique describing spatial relationships over sparse structures for crypt detection using morphological mesh filtering operators
