Autoencoder Features for Differentiation of Leukocytes based on Digital Holographic Microscopy (DHM)
The differentiation and counting of leukocytes is essential
for the diagnosis of leukemia. This work investigates the suitability of Deep Convolutional Autoencoders and Principal Component Analysis (PCA) to generate robust features from the 3D image data of a digital holographic microscope (DHM). The results show that the feature space is not trivially separable in both cases. A terminal classification by a Support Vector Machine (SVM) favors the uncorrelated PCA features.
