Micronuclei Analysis in Radiation Dosimetry
"The results shown in this paper support the value of automated MN scoring for biological biodosimetry, using the Metafer system. The obtained automated MN scores are highly correlated with the manual MN scores (r2=0.917) and a visual check of the BN confirms ths efficacy of the image analysis. Since the system makes few errors, it is not advantageous to visually validate the MN counts obtained by the Metafer system [...]. The optimisation of the fixation and the standard Metafer classifier settings were also confirmed by the quality of the image analysis."
