A system and method for detecting diagnostic cells and cells having malignancy-associated changes are disclosed. The system includes an automated classifier having a microscope, camera, image digitizer, a computer system for controlling and interfacing these components, a primary classifier for initial cell classification, and a secondary classifier for subsequent cell classification. The method utilizes the automated classifier to automatically detect diagnostic cells and cells having malignancy-associated changes. The system and method are particularly useful for detecting these cells in cell samples obtained from bronchial specimens such as lung sputum.
