Abstract

Multiple Myeloma (MM) is a common blood cancer linked to white blood cells. Patients’ survival rates increase based on early diagnosis. Early diagnosis, however, has been a major issue. This study offers a model for detecting multiple myeloma from microscopic images of patients’ blood cells that combines VGG16, capsule networks (CapsNet), and random forests (RF). The model is trained using 85 blood cell pictures, and accuracy and intersection over union (IoU) metrics are used to compare it to state-of-the-art (SOTA) models like U-Net and masked-RCNN. From the comparison of the results of both models, it was observed that VGG16-CapsNet model gave better accuracy, but VGG16-RF model performed better in terms of segmentation of myeloma cells. However, the achieved segmented output was not better than the masked-RCNN model.
