The efficacy of contour and texture features for the computer recognition of abnormal ectocervical cells is compared. For this comparison, three cell groups were formed: benign, suspicious and malignant. Nine decision rules were derived. The discrimination attained by features derived from the contours of nucleus and cytoplasm is comparable to that achieved by textural features. A combination of both kinds of features gives best results.
