Design & Development of Leukoanalyzer, an automated Computer Assisted Tool, for Minimal Residual Disease Estimation (MRD) in B lineage Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia using Image Processing Techniques.

Implementing Agency: Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology, Delhi and AIIMS, New Delhi

Contact Person: Anubha Gupta, PhD. Associate Professor, e-mail:

Description: To design and develop an automated tool, Leukoanalyzer, for minimal residual disease estimation (MRD) in B-Lineage acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a type of blood cancer, using image processing techniques. Leukoanalyzer will be a machine independent Graphic User Interface executable code that will accept microscopic images of bone marrow aspirate stored in the hard disk of a computer system. It will be a semi-automated tool wherein the pathologist will first mark the cells visible in the images displayed on the screen. Subsequently, these marked cells will be extracted from the image and fed to the classifier. In the end, the classifier will make a decision on whether that cell is normal or malignant.
