Leukemia is a highly fatal hematologic cancer which starts in blood-forming tissue, such as bone marrow and triggers high production of immature and abnormal shaped blood cells. Skilled medical officers are required to diagnose leukemia from blood smears. This poses a problem in remote areas and rural areas where there is a shortage of qualified medical personnel.

Satisfactory preliminary experimental results demonstrate the efficacy of our system
