The article focuses on the development of entropy-based automated approach used in the region of interest segmentation in the whole slide images of prostate biopsy. It points out the basis of the method to an analysis based on colour and texture. It is also found useful as it can be combined with a slide visualization environment and it can be used in classification applications.
