Abstract : In this paper, we present a graph-based multi-resolution approach for mitosis extraction in breast cancer histological whole slide images. The proposed segmentation uses a multi-resolution approach which reproduces the slide examination done by a pathologist. Each resolution level is analyzed with a focus of attention resulting from a coarser resolution level analysis. At each resolution level, a spatial refinement by semi-supervised clustering is performed to obtain more accurate segmen- tation around edges. The proposed segmentation is fully unsupervised by using domain specific knowledge.
