Thesis Title: Optimum Automated Procedures for Detecting and Mining Microscopic Urine Particles


Urine analysis reveals the presence of many problems and diseases in human body. Manual microscopic urine analysis is time consuming, subjective to human observation, and causes mistakes. Computer aided automatic microscopic analysis can overcome these problems.

This research introduced a comprehensive approach for automating procedures for detecting and recognition of microscopic urine particles.  Samples of RBC, WBC, epithelial cell, calcium oxalate, triple phosphate, and other undefined images were used in experiments. Experiment was applied in two tracks, first considered vague particles which have light boundaries, and second considered the solid particles which have strong boundaries.

In first experiment, images were segmented, textural features were extracted, features’ selection was applied, and five classifiers were tested to get the best results where accuracy of 90.16% was got. In second experiment, image processing functions and segmentation were applied, shape and textural features were extracted, and five classifiers were tested to get the best results where accuracy of 96.41% was got. Repeated experiments were done for adjusting factors to produce the best evaluation results. A very good performance was achieved compared with many related works.

Thesis Title: Computer Aided Medical Analysis


An artificial intelligence system on the basis of image processing, consists of pc special camera, microscope, and pc software system; the system do three major tasks

  1. Captures the urine slice image and detect objects inside it to discover the disease

  2. Captures ten images of sperms slice (semen analysis) and calculate the number of active, sluggish, and dead sperms

  3. Prints reports, database to save information for patient future reviews, and backup of each test images or videos
