So far, analysis and classification of urine cells number has become an important topic for medical diagnosis of some diseases. Therefore, in this study, we suggest a new technique based on Adaptive Discrete Wavelet Entropy Energy and Neural Network Classifier (ADWEENN) for Recognition of Urine Cells from Microscopic Images Independent of Rotation and Scaling. Some digital image processing methods such as noise reduction, contrast enhancement, segmentation, and morphological process are used for feature extraction stage of this ADWEENN in this study. Nowadays, the image processing and pattern recognition topics have come into prominence. The image processing concludes operation and design of systems that recognize patterns in data sets. In the past years, very difficulty in classification of microscopic images was the deficiency of enough methods to characterize. Lately, it is seen that, multi-resolution image analysis methods such as Gabor filters, discrete wavelet decompositions are superior to other classic methods for analysis of these microscopic images. In this study, the structure of the ADWEENN method composes of four stages. These are preprocessing stage, feature extraction stage, classification stage and testing stage. The Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) and adaptive wavelet entropy and energy is used for adaptive feature extraction in feature extraction stage to strengthen the premium features of the Artificial Neural Network (ANN) classifier in this study. Efficiency of the developed ADWEENN method was tested showing that an avarage of 97.58 % recognition succes was obtained.


A validated active contour method driven by parabolic arc model for detection and segmentation of mitochondria
Tasel, Serdar F.; Mumcuoğlu, Ünal Erkan; Hassanpour, Reza Z.; Perkins, Guy (2016-06-01)
Recent studies reveal that mitochondria take substantial responsibility in cellular functions that are closely related to aging diseases caused by degeneration of neurons. These studies emphasize that the membrane and crista morphology of a mitochondrion should receive attention in order to investigate the link between mitochondria] function and its physical structure. Electron microscope tomography (EMT) allows analysis of the inner structures of mitochondria by providing highly detailed visual data from l...
A comparative study on EpCAM antibody immobilization on gold surfaces and microfluidic channels for the detection of circulating tumor cells
Cetin, Didem; Okan, Meltem; Bat, Erhan; Külah, Haluk (2020-04-01)
Detection of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from the bloodstream holds great importance to diagnose cancer at early stages. However, CTCs being extremely rare in blood makes them difficult to reach. In this paper, we introduced different surface modification techniques for the enrichment and detection of MCF-7 in microfluidic biosensor applications using gold surface and EpCAM antibody. Mainly, two different mechanisms were employed to immobilize the antibodies; covalent bonding and bioaffinity interaction....
A High throughput parylene microchannel coulter counter for cell sizing and cell counting applications /
Laçin, Özgen Sümer; Külah, Haluk; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
In medical research, cell counting is of a great importance for the indication of the health status of the patients, diagnosis of the illness, and the detection of the progress of a disease. In clinics, cell counting and sorting is carried out by Coulter Counter devices, in which the electrical potential or resistance change is measured when the cells flow through the defined aperture. Coulter Counter devices perform rapid and accurate analysis of the biological particles in terms of their size and dielectr...
Examination of the dielectrophoretic spectra of MCF7 breast cancer cells and leukocytes
Çağlayan, Zeynep; Demircan Yalçın, Yağmur; Külah, Haluk (Wiley, 2020-03-01)
The detection of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in blood is crucial to assess metastatic progression and to guide therapy. Dielectrophoresis (DEP) is a powerful cell surface marker-free method that allows intrinsic dielectric properties of suspended cells to be exploited for CTC enrichment/isolation from blood. Design of a successful DEP-based CTC enrichment/isolation system requires that the DEP response of the targeted particles should accurately be known. This paper presents a DEP spectrum method to inve...
A Phase-field Approach to Model Aortic Dissections
Gültekin, Osman; Dal, Hüsnü; Holzapfel, Gerhard A. (null; 2018-07-06)
Physiological and pathological aspects of aortic dissection are important issues in medical science , and undoubtedly require a deeper understanding of the respective mechanics that is behind these phenomenon. This has rendered computational mechanics very important to improve and even guide monitoring and preoperative planning [1]. In particular, the in silico estimation of the macro-scopic crack initiation and its propagation associated with aortic dissection purports valuable data for the clinics. The pr...
