Whole slide imaging is Food and Drug Administration-approved for primary diagnosis in the United States of America; however, relatively few pathology departments in the country have fully implemented an enterprise wide digital pathology system enabled for primary diagnosis. Digital pathology has significant potential to transform pathology practice with several published studies documenting some level of diagnostic equivalence between digital and conventional systems. However, whole slide imaging also has significant potential to disrupt pathology practice, due to the differences in efficiency of manipulating digital images vis-à-vis glass slides, and studies on the efficiency of actual digital pathology workload are lacking. Our randomized, equivalency and efficiency study aimed to replicate clinical workflow, comparing conventional microscopy to a complete digital pathology signout using whole slide images, evaluating the equivalency and efficiency of glass slide to whole slide image reporting,
In this paper, we present a graph-based multi-resolution approach for mitosis extraction in breast cancer histological whole slide images. The proposed segmentation uses a multiresolution approach which reproduces the slide examination done by a pathologist. Each resolution level is analyzed with a focus of attention resulting from a coarser resolution level analysis. At each resolution level, a spatial refinement by semi-supervised clustering is performed to obtain more accurate segmentation around edges. The proposed segmentation is fully unsupervised by using domain specific knowledge.
It is estimated that more than 19,000 pathologists would be needed to serve the US healthcare needs. However, the actual number is expected to be approximately 40% lesser. Similar trends are foreseen globally driven by aging population and widening application in areas such as cancer diagnostics, drug development, clinical trials, biomarker discovery, and companion diagnostics. Digital pathology can improve efficiency of pathologists by 10-15%, thereby helping the healthcare providers in filling such gaps. This factor is a key driver for the rapid growth in adoption of digital pathology solutions globally. In April 2017, FDA approved the IntelliSite Pathology Solution from Royal Philips. This was the first digital pathology product for which any US manufacturer received approval for primary diagnostics purpose. An expected increase in regulatory approval for digital pathology systems for primary diagnostics will support the growth in demand for these systems. To cater to the growing demand for digital

The rise of digital pathology and with it the challenges of histopathology analysis have been the focus of a worldwide effort in the overall fight against cancer. In parallel, the recent success of automated decision-making, machine learning, and specifically deep learning, have revolutionised the basis of research as we know today. In this thesis, we tackle the prediction of treatment response in triple-negative breast cancer patients with two different approaches that reach similar outcomes. The first line of approach, based on the recent success of computer vision, extracts learned features from the data in order to perform classification. The second line of approach forces the information flow to pass through nuclei segmentation. In particular, it allows the incorporation of high-resolution information on to a lower resolution overview. Yet while this approach is more appealing as it is based on the analysis and quantification of a precise biological element, nuclei segmentation is troublesome.

Digital Pathology Market Fortune Business Insights presents an in-depth analysis of the Digital Pathology Market size, growth, share, and technologies
While brightfield images (e.g. stained in H&E) are the primary choice for observing the morphology of the tissue, fluorescence images are better for the visualization of the cellular characteristics. Digital multiplexing of brightfield and fluorescence images can combine the benefits of both worlds while maintaining the individual characteristics of each of the modalities. Many digital pathology scanners available today are equipped to scan images in both brightfield and fluorescence mode. When using both modes for a tissue sample, adjoined sections are typically prepared and scanned separately and the resulting whole slide images (WSIs) need to be reviewed or analyzed individually. Aligning images from multiple modalities can help aggregating information from consecutive sections stained in histochemical and fluorescent dyes, e.g. protein expression and gene amplification by aligning immunohistochemical (IHC) markers with fluorescence in-situ hybridization (FISH). The aligned images can then be ...

Whole slide imaging in pathology: advantages, limitations, and emerging perspectives Navid Farahani,1 Anil V Parwani,2 Liron Pantanowitz2 1Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA, USA; 2Department of Pathology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, PA, USA Abstract: Significant technologic gains have led to the adoption of innovative digital imaging solutions in pathology. Whole slide imaging (WSI), which refers to scanning of conventional glass slides in order to produce digital slides, is the most recent imaging modality being employed by pathology departments worldwide. WSI continues to gain traction among pathologists for diagnostic, educational, and research purposes. This article provides a technologic review of WSI platforms and covers clinical and nonclinical pathology applications of these imaging systems. Barriers to adoption of WSI include limiting technology, image quality, problems with scanning all materials (eg,
Results Digitally, 93/96 cases could be assessed (96.8%). Microscopic and digital evaluation of HER2 amplification status were concordant in 68/93 cases ((73.1%, 95% CI: 0.639 −0.823), κ 0.588). CISH underscoring was most noticeable in the amplified and equivocal categories while the highest level concordance was seen in cases with a normal copy number. Additionally there was a noticeable tendency to underestimate the average HER2 scores on WSI: lower in 59 and higher in 11 cases. There was no major difference in time spent for microscopic scoring (86.9 s) and digital scoring (81.7 s). ...

Digital pathology could have immediate implications for patient care as well: the digital workflow could eliminate issues with handling materials and could detect abnormalities as they occur. Digitization also means pathologists no longer have to worry about the risk of losing or damaging specimens.
Metabolic profiling of cancer is a rising interest in the field of biomarker development. One bottleneck of its clinical exploitation, however, is the lack of simple and quantitative techniques that enable to capture the key metabolic traits of tumor from archival samples. In fact, liquid chromatography associated with mass spectrometry is the gold-standard technique for the study of tumor metabolism because it has high levels of accuracy and precision. However, it requires freshly frozen samples, which are difficult to collect in large multi-centric clinical studies. For this reason, we propose here to investigate a set of established metabolism-associated protein markers by exploiting immunohistochemistry coupled with digital pathology. As case study, we quantified expression of MCT1, MCT4, GLS, PHGDH, FAS, and ACC in 17 patient-derived ovarian cancer xenografts and correlated it with survival. Among these markers, the glycolysis-associated marker MCT4 was negatively associated with survival of mice.

Pathologists use light microscopes for the diagnosis of diseases in tissue sections on glass slides since the development of the modern pathology by Rudolf Virchow in 1858. However, the rapid development of information technology during the last three decades is now also reaching this sanctuary of pathology as they have reached almost all aspects of modern life.. The new technologies of digital pathology allow for the digitization of glass slides, to visualize them on the screen, analyze them automatically and to exchange this information rapidly via networks. Digital pathology has been integrated in some pathological routine labs already and it is expected to be an integral component of veterinary pathology in the future.. Our group is currently evaluating and validating the potential of digital pathology in diagnostics, research and education and aims at developing new approaches for the automated image analysis of histological and cytopathologic specimens..

Optical examination of microscale features in pathology slides is one of the gold standards to diagnose disease. However, the use of conventional light microscopes is partially limited owing to their relatively high cost, bulkiness of lens-based optics, small field of view (FOV), and requirements for lateral scanning and three-dimensional (3D) focus adjustment. We illustrate the performance of a computational lens-free, holographic on-chip microscope that uses the transport-of-intensity equation, multi-height iterative phase retrieval, and rotational field transformations to perform wide-FOV imaging of pathology samples with comparable image quality to a traditional transmission lens-based microscope. The holographically reconstructed image can be digitally focused at any depth within the object FOV (after image capture) without the need for mechanical focus adjustment and is also digitally corrected for artifacts arising from uncontrolled tilting and height variations between the sample and ...

Invited Talk #4 Speaker: Jeffrey Goldstein, Northwestern, USA Title: Machine learning for placental pathology: Why, How, and What Now? [slides] [Video] Abstract: The placenta is the first organ to form in human development and acts as the lungs, gut, and kidney in fetal life. Most adverse pregnancy outcomes are associated with abnormalities in the placenta - abnormalities that may have life-long consequences for the mother or infant. Yet, ,20% of placentas delivered in the U.S. receive a pathologic examination. Among pathologists, there is a wide range of capability and high inter-observer variability. Machine learning and digital pathology offer the possibility of making placenta examination universally available and increasing consistency. As a demonstration of the potential utility of machine learning in placental pathology, we trained a model to estimate gestational age from the microscopic appearance of placental villi.

Computer-aided prognosis (CAP) is a new and exciting complement to the field of computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) and involves developing and applying computerized image analysis and multi-modal data fusion algorithms to digitized patient data (e.g. imaging, tissue, genomic) for helping physicians predict disease outcome and patient survival. While a number of data channels, ranging from the macro (e.g. MRI) to the nano-scales (proteins, genes) are now being routinely acquired for disease characterization, one of the challenges in predicting patient outcome and treatment response has been in our inability to quantitatively fuse these disparate, heterogeneous data sources. At the Laboratory for Computational Imaging and Bioinformatics (LCIB)(1) at Rutgers University, our team has been developing computerized algorithms for high dimensional data and image analysis for predicting disease outcome from multiple modalities including MRI, digital pathology, and protein expression. Additionally, we have ...
Welcome to the Human Tissue Resource Center. The mission of this CAP-accredited core facility is to provide investigators with a centralized infrastructure to optimize the efficiency and costs related to research involving biospecimens. The HTRC occupies 4000 square feet of remodeled space within Pathology and functions as an integrated unit. Thus, duplication of personnel, equipment, and information systems are avoided, and coordination of activities is assured. The HTRC now comprises four integrated facilities: Biospecimen Bank (BSB), Laser Capture Microdissection (LCM), Digital Pathology and Histology (including immunohistochemistry). Currently the HTRC provides services for the collection of clinically-annotated human tissues, DNA, PBMC, saliva, and other requested body fluids. In addition, the core also provides services for tissue microarray (TMA) construction as well as cryostats and digital imaging for investigators use. In this way, the HTRC provides a coordinated, centralized, and ...

My current academic interests are in the fields of pathology informatics and practice management, including quality assurance and patient safety. The computer has long been a tool for data storage and management. More recently, information systems have become integrated into the daily practice of pathology, providing not only access to data, but also directing workflow, managing resources, and helping to guide medical decisions. Proper design of these systems is crucial to their being a useful adjunct to patient care rather than an obstacle which has to be overcome. Such design requires a comprehensive understanding of the clinical workflow as well as the capabilities and limitations of the information systems. In many cases, custom software development provides the greatest gain in workflow optimization, clinician productivity and efficiency, and patient safety. Proper capture and storage of data can also enable subsequent workflow analysis and quality tracking.. ...
My recent research project actually came about after our grant application got rejected.. Liya Lomsadze (DC 13) recently moved to New York to work for Northwell Health, as a Project Manager with the Pathology Informatics group. We asked her to talk to us about the work she is doing in the world of healthcare data, and the kinds of challenges she encounters in her field. What projects are you currently working on?. Im working on several dozen projects right now, all of which revolve around making lab data more accessible and useful to clinicians and other healthcare professionals. Some of that involves building tools that make it easier to access data in bulk, going around and meeting with people in different parts of the hospital system to understand their needs, and trying to bridge the gaps between the clinical and technical worlds.. What kind of response have you gotten to your research?. Not much yet! Im presenting some of our findings about acute kidney injury at my first conference in ...
Each question is associated with a particular structure in the virtual microscope slide to its right. Clicking on Show Marker will drop a maker on that structure. The virtual microscope slide uses a Google Maps interface which allows you to zoom in and out and pan across the slide. An approximate current magnification is shown at the top of the slide. Please note that you will likely need to change the current magnification to correctly identify the structure to which the marker is pointing.. ...
Microscope slide scanners are currently offered commercially by a couple of companies. The prices are in some cases high (approx. € 100.000 and more), for example, by Hamamatsu, Zeiss, 3DHistech, Leica, Aperio. Theses scanners are delivered with so-called slide loaders that make it possible to load hundreds of slides at a time and then process them one after another. Scanning a slide with a 20x magnification takes approximately 2 - 5 minutes, depending on the scanner. The different slides scanners have different scanning qualities and should always be tested extensively, and in consideration of the requirements, before a purchase is made. There is a manufacturer that offers a very inexpensive system but with a rather low resolution (Histology Scanner).. However,there is another possibility, the manual whole-slide scanning. With manual scanning, you use your own microscope, add a low-cost camera and a stitching software to it and scan by moving the microscope table. A leading product is ...

The Open Microscopy Environment (OME) is an open-source software project that develops tools that enable access, analysis, visualization, sharing and publication of biological image data. We support more than 150 image data formats across many imaging modalities including medical imaging, high-content screening and whole-slide imaging. We support and visualize multi-channel 3D timelapse images. OMERO, a component of OME, is a software platform for image data management and analysis which will be presented in this course. Import, organisation, viewing, searching, annotation and publishing of imaging data with OMERO will be shown. The workshop concentrates on basics of OMERO and does not assume any programming skills. ...
Purpose: Our goal is to develop and apply a set of optical and computational tools to enable large-scale investigations of the interaction between collagen and tumor cells. Methods: We have built a novel imaging system for automating the capture of whole-slide second harmonic generation (SHG) images of collagen in registry with bright field (BF) images of hematoxylin and eosin stained tissue. To analyze our images, we have integrated a suite of supervised learning tools that semi-automatically model and score collagen interactions with tumor cells via a variety of metrics, a method we call Electronic Tumor Associated Collagen Signatures (eTACS). This group of tools first segments regions of epithelial cells and collagen fibers from BF and SHG images respectively. We then associate fibers with groups of epithelial cells and finally compute features based on the angle of interaction and density of the collagen surrounding the epithelial cell clusters. These features are then processed with a ...
A tonsil section was stained with TissuePlex reagents and imaged using the Orion Instrument. All markers were stained in a single-staining procedure and imaged in a single scan. In order to best feature relevant biomarkers, two regions of interest (ROI) are shown from the whole-slide, 21-channel scan. ROI #1 includes the tonsillar crypt and B cell follicular region, and ROI #2 includes inter-follicular T cell zone with prominent blood vessels.. In the image at left, markers are pseudocolored as follows: PD-1 (blue), CD4 (purple), CD45RO (yellow), CD20 (cyan), CD3e (magenta), SMA (red), Pan-cytokeratin (green).. ...
