Digital pathology has an important role and is increasingly a technological requirement in the diagnostic & scientific labs, medical universities & colleges, research centers, etc. The advantage of whole-slide imaging, the availability of faster networks, and cheaper storage solutions have made it easier for pathologists to manage digital slide images and share them for clinical use. Advances in machine learning have enabled the synergy of artificial intelligence and digital pathology.
It offers image-based diagnosis possibilities that were once limited only to radiology and cardiology. Integration of digital slides, advanced algorithms, and computer-aided diagnostic techniques provides pathologists with much more needed information than microscopic slides.
Artificial Intelligence in Pathology-
AI in Pathology is a computer program that assists pathologists in their work. It analyzes digital slide images using image analysis and machine learning. Machine learning for cell classification, where pathologists provide tissue expertise and computers tackle the computational tasks of counting cells, calculating objective measurements, and complex scoring.
Applications of AI in Pathology-
- Potential benefits in clinical applications- The benefits of applying AI in pathology include standardization and reproducibility, improvements in diagnostic accuracy, expansion of the availability of subspecialty expertise, and increased efficiency
- Detecting cancer regions
- Measuring tumor cellularity for genomic analysis
- Prediction of mutations from H&E morphology
By assisting pathologists in diagnoses, AI can potentially help in reducing errors and identifying cases where consultation is required; this technology can also provide support in an area beyond the expertise of the attending pathologist.
OptraSCAN offers an OS-SiA scanner a next-gen artificial intelligence image slide scanner, driven by artificial intelligence and deep learning concept. The scanner automatically identifies regions to scan and simultaneously analyzes the tissue/cell area being scanned based on tissue morphology and type of biomarker. This eventually benefits the end-user to view the whole slide scanned image along with analyzed output as an overlay during their review process. This analyzed information thus acts as a reference Heatmap guiding the users to get a high-level view of tumors, rare events or any other areas of importance.
OS-SiA scanners are highly flexible and customizable scanners that can be embedded in OptraSCAN’s existing series of cloud-enabled 15-480 slide brightfield scanners namely OS-Lite and OS-Ultra.
