Color deconvolution. Color separation for foreground cells and background color and cell segmentation based on the extracted color information: color deconvolution is applied to separate the blue stain (b) and background color (c). The extracted blue color is further applied with multistage entropy-based segmentation to segment the cell area (d) for quantification.
