Identification and tracking of red blood cells and leukocytes in micro-circulation is very important for drug validation and inflammation. Manual tracking is usually used for this purpose. However, due to its excessive time consumption and inaccuracy in the case of overlapped cells, there is a need for automated methods. In this paper, we propose a Kalman filter and active-disc-based method for automatic and accurate detection of cells. In addition to tracking both slow and fast moving blood cells, the proposed method is also able to track overlapped cells successfully with an overall tracking accuracy of 95.7% and at a processing rate of 25 ms per frame. Comparisons with five state-of-the-art methods show that the proposed method is better in terms of the detection rate and accuracy of instantaneous speed estimation.
