  • Abstract : Presence of clue cells is a critical criterion for diagnosis of bacterial vaginosis. We propose a coupled active contour model for segmenting the clue cells from immunofluorescence microscope images of the samples. It enables jointly segmenting the boundaries of the epithelial cell, its nucleus, and distinct bacteria. Convexification is formulated on top of the levelset framework using characteristic functions. Our approach provides a global optimal solution. Efficacy of the method is demonstrated on clinical data.
