The possibility that computerized image analysis could increase the reproducibility of grading of bladder carcinoma as compared to conventional subjective grading made by pathologists was investigated. Object, texture and graph based analysis were carried out from Feulgen stained histological tissue sections. The object based features were extracted from(More)
Cancer diagnosis is based on visual examination under a microscope of tissue sections from biopsies. But whereas pathologists rely on tissue stains to identify morphological features, automated tissue recognition using color is fraught with problems that stem from image intensity variations due to variations in tissue preparation, variations in spectral(More)
Seventy-three TUR-T biopsies from bladder carcinoma were evaluated regarding microvessel density, defined as microvessel number (nMVD) and cross-section endothelial cell area (aMVD). A semi-automatic and a newly developed, automatic image analysis technique were applied in immunostainings, performed according to an optimized staining protocol. In 12 cases a(More)
A fully automatic method for quantification of images of immunohistochemically stained cell nuclei by computing area proportions, is presented. Agarose embedded cultured fibroblasts were fixed, paraffin embedded and sectioned at 4 microm. They were then stained together with 4 microm sections of the test specimen obtained from bladder cancer material. A(More)
An automatic method for quantification of images of microvessels by computing area proportions and number of objects is presented. The objects are segmented from the background using dynamic thresholding of the average component size histogram. To be able to count the objects, fragmented objects are connected, all objects are filled, and touching objects(More)
This thesis is based on the following papers, which are referred to in the text by their Roman numerals. Automated classification of multicolored rolling circle products in dual-channel wide-field fluorescence microscopy. Cytometry Part A, 79A(7):518-527 Presented methods were used for evaluation of molecular biology techniques in the following paper:(More)
To better understand prostate function and disease, it is important to define and explore the molecular constituents that signify the prostate gland. The aim of this study was to define the prostate specific transcriptome and proteome, in comparison to 26 other human tissues. Deep sequencing of mRNA (RNA-seq) and immunohistochemistry-based protein profiling(More)
AIMS A methodology for quantitative comparison of histological stains based on their classification and clustering performance, which may facilitate the choice of histological stains for automatic pattern and image analysis. BACKGROUND Machine learning and image analysis are becoming increasingly important in pathology applications for automatic analysis(More)
