Image segmentation is an important phase in image recognition system.In medical imaging such as blood cell analysis, it becomes a crucial step in quantitative cytophotometry. Currently, blood cell images become predominantly valuable in medical diagnostics tools.In this paper, we present a comparative analysis on several segmentation algorithms. Three selected common approaches, that are Fuzzy c-means, K-means and Mean-shift were presented.Blood cell images that are infected with malaria parasites at various stages were tested.The most suitable method that is K-means was selected. K-means has been enhanced by integrating Median-cut algorithm to further improve the segmentation process.The proposed integrated method has shown a significant improvement in the number of selected regions.
