Chagas Parasite Segmentation

   

     


Abstract

Chagas disease is a tropical parasitic disease caused by the protist Trypanosoma cruzi. About 7 million to 8 million people worldwide, mostly in Latin America, are estimated to be infected. Since blood samples analisys is time consuming, this project proposes automated systems based on convolutional neural networks to detect this parasite.
