In this work we present an approach based on image texture analysis to obtain a description of oocyte cytoplasm which could aid the medical expert in the selection of oocytes to be used for assisted insemination. More specifically, we describe some characteristics such as different levels of uniformity and/or granularity in the oocyte cytoplasm, using multiresolution texture analysis applied to light microscope images. To this aim, we evaluate some statistical measures in the wavelet transform domain of image regions and classify them according to different levels of granularity. Preliminary experimental results on a collection of light microscope images of oocytes are reported to show the effectiveness of the proposed approach.

Abstract

In this work we present an approach based on image texture analysis to obtain a description of oocyte cytoplasm which could aid the medical expert in the selection of oocytes to be used for assisted insemination. More specifically, we describe some characteristics such as different levels of uniformity and/or granularity in the oocyte cytoplasm, using multiresolution texture analysis applied to light microscope images. To this aim, we evaluate some statistical measures in the wavelet transform domain of image regions and classify them according to different levels of granularity. Preliminary experimental results on a collection of light microscope images of oocytes are reported to show the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
