During the unfolding measures that are taken for the purpose of leukemia detection, segmentation of blood cells is a vital step. In this paper two approaches of such segmentation technique is proposed. While one uses K-means clustering, other uses color image based segmentation method. Both the processes segment the image into two regions, blasts & backgrounds. These blasts are our area of interest. The performance measure is based on the comparison of the two proposed techniques tends to find
