In this paper, an automatic method for tissue cell local ization is proposed. It is based on the principle of adap tive thresholding. While the general adaptive thresholding method requires setting of some parameters by user, a novel algorithm chooses suitable thresholds and image division on its own. The resulting binary image is then submitted to a region labeling procedure. Each individual region is inspected and tested for suitability for further processing. Finally, each region is marked by one marker. Feasibility of this approach has already been success fully tested on 3D colon tissue images.
