Histopathology refers to the examination of biopsy samples by a pathologist using a microscope for analysing and classifying diseases. In order to study the manifestations of a disease, the analysis of histopathological image is done manually by a pathologist and therefore the diagnosis is subjective and greatly dependent on the level of expertise of the professional. In order to overcome this problem of a possible erroneous diagnosis and for early stage detection, an automated computerized image processing system is needed for quantitative diagnosis of biopsy samples. In this paper we have proposed a model for early stage cancerous cell detection and have reviewed and summarized the phases involved, namely, Image Pre-processing, Image Segmentation, Feature Extraction and Classification.
