Abstract

<p>Automatic sperm detection is in high demand for supporting Testicular Sperm Extraction (TESE). On the other hand, detection of sperms in samples of TESE is difficult because there are a lot of germ cells resembling sperms. This paper realizes automatic sperm detection for TESE by using Adaptive Thresholded Boosting (ATBoost) which is robust to overlap of feature distributions between positive samples and negative samples. In this paper, we evaluated our sperm detection method in two stages from the view point of robustness to the overlap. First, we quantitatively evaluated the overlap of the feature distributions in TESE in the metric of Bayes error rate. Second, we evaluated robustness of our sperm detection method as for the overlap. These two results show that our sperm detection method is very effective for TESE.</p>
