This work discusses the performance of a color decomposition based active contours for segmenting cell nuclei from glioma histopathology. By combining a nuclear staining information obtained from color decomposition with fast variational active contours we obtain unsupervised segmentation of nuclei in histopathological images. Experimental results show promise when compared with different state of the art techniques.
