© 2015 IEEE. Automated detection of cancerous tissue in histopathological images is a big challenge. This work proposed a new pattern recognition method for histopathological image analysis for identification of cancerous tissues. It comprised of feature extraction using a combination of wavelet and intensity based statistical features and autoregressive parameters. Moreover, differential evolution based feature selection is used for dimensionality reduction and an efficient self-advised version of support vector machine is used for evaluation of selected features and for the classification of images. The proposed system is trained and tested using a dataset of 150 histopathological images and showed promising comparative results with an average diagnostic accuracy of 89.1%.
