Abstract : Visual examination of blood and bone marrow smears is an important tool for diagnosis, prevention and treatment of clinical patients. The interest of computer aided decision has been identified in many medical applications: automatic methods are being explored to detect, classify and measure objects in hematological cytology. This chapter presents a comprehensive review of the state of the art and currently available literature and techniques related to automated analysis of blood smears. The most relevant image processing and machine learning techniques used to develop a fully automated blood smear analysis system which can help to reduce time spent for slide examination are presented. Advances in each component of this system are described in acquisition, segmentation and detection of cell components, feature extraction and selection approaches for describing the objects, and schemes for cell classification.
