Detection of tumor cell spheroids from co-cultures

We have developed a method for detecting tumor cell spheroids in phase contrast images of co-cultures of fibroblasts and tumor cells in an experimental 3D model. It depends on local features defined over superpixels. The method learns appearance based features, statistical features, textural features and their combinations.
