Histology

Analysis approaches for histology images; in particular, for appearance normalization.

Multiple Instance Learning for Heterogeneous Images: Training a CNN for Histopathology

Multiple instance (MI) learning with a convolutional neural network enables end-to-end training in the presence of weak image-level labels. We propose a new method for aggregating predictions from smaller regions of the image into an image-level …

Appearance normalization of histology slides

This paper presents a method for automatic color and intensity normalization of digitized histology slides stained with two different agents. In comparison to previous approaches, prior information on the stain vectors is used in the plane estimation …

Hierarchical task-driven feature learning for tumor histology

Through learning small and large-scale image features, we can capture the local and architectural structure of tumor tissue from histology images. This is done by learning a hierarchy of dictionaries using sparse coding, where each level captures …

Topological Descriptors of Histology Images

The purpose of this study is to investigate architectural characteristics of cell arrangements in breast cancer histology images. We propose the use of topological data analysis to summarize the geometric information inherent in tumor cell …

Image and Statistical Analysis of Melanocytic Histology

Aims: We apply digital image analysis techniques to study selected types of melanocytic lesions. Methods and Results: We use advanced digital image analysis to compare melanocytic lesions. All comparisons were statistically significant (p < …

Appearance Normalization of Histology Slides

This paper presents a method for automatic color and intensity normalization of digitized histology slides stained with two different agents. In comparison to previous approaches, prior information on the stain vectors is used in the estimation …

A Method for Normalizing Histology Slides for Quantitative Analysis

Inconsistencies in the preparation of histology slides make it difficult to perform quantitative analysis on their results. In this paper we provide two mechanisms for overcoming many of the known inconsistencies in the staining process, thereby …
