Abstract
The hemogram is one of the most requested medical tests as it presents details about the three cell series in the blood: red series, white series and platelet series. To make some diagnostics, the specialist must undertake the test manually, observing the blood cells under the microscope, which implies a great physical effort. In order to facilitate this work, different digital image processing techniques to detect and classify red blood cells have been proposed. However, a common problem is the presence of overlapped cells, which generate various flaws in the analysis. Therefore, the implementation of an algorithm to address the problem of red blood cells overl...
