CoreHist - A Correlation Filter based Nuclei Detector for Histopathological Images


CoreHist is a cloud-based web-server designed to implement correlation filter based detector. It is based on a novel method using kernelized correlation filter for nuclei detection in histopathology images. The proposed filter offers state of the art prediction capability of nuclei in histology images. You can upload histopathology images of your interest to detect nuclei in them. The detected nuclei present themselves as correlation peaks in the response image. A sample input and response image are shown below. You may need to threshold and post-process the output.
