Abstract : Early detection of lung cancer is a challenging problem, the world faces today. Prior to classify glandular cells as malignant or benign a reliable segmentation technique is required. In this paper we present a novel lung glandular cell segmentation technique. The technique uses a combination of multiple color spaces andvarious clustering algorithms to automatically find the best possible segmentation result. Unsupervised clustering methods of K-means and Fuzzy C-means were used on multiple color spaces such as HSV, LAB, LUV, xyY. Experimental results of segmentation using various color spaces are provided to show theperformance of the proposed system.
