In this paper, a nucleus and cytoplast contour detector (NCC detector) is presented to automatically
detect the cytoplast and nucleus contours of a cell in a cervical smear image. The NCC detector uses
the adaptable threshold decision (ATD) method to separate the cell from the cervical smear image, and
then uses the maximal gray-level-gradient-difference (MGLGD) method, proposed in this paper, to
extract the nucleus from the cell. The experimental results show that the NCC detector is superior to
two existing methods, the gradient vector flow-active contour model (GVF-ACM) and the edge enhancement
nucleus and cytoplast contour (ENNCC) detector, in segmenting the cytoplast and nucleus of a cell.
