Abstract

Histological sections from colon carcinoma were evaluated by quantitative TV-microscopy. As a first step the nuclear profiles were digitized, segmented and measured. Besides classical cytometrical parameters like several global textural features, the fine structure of eu- and heterochromatin distribution was measured in terms of arrangement and neighbourhood relationship.

The resulting features are related to corresponding pathological diagnosis. As an example it is shown, that the existence of metastases may be correlated with features of the nuclear chromatin distribution.
