Diagnosis of diseases like malaria in the rural area is challenging because of lack of experts. The modern digital facilities helps in solving this problem. The image based approach enabled by computer technology that helps in diagnosis of digital slide is termed as digital pathology. In case of malaria, the infection is detected by observing Red Blood Corpuscles (RBC) manually using microscope. The digital slide preparation of a malaria blood sample and diagnosing the details of disease is challenging. The development of malaria detection system using image processing technique is a significant part of a modern digital telepathology. The proposed work presents the image processing approach for classification of malarial from blood image using YIQ color space. A set of images belonging to malarial and non-malarial classes were processed and a classification accuracy of 97.5% is obtained
