Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second deadliest form of cancer in males, and it can be clinically graded by examining the structural representations of Gleason tissues. This paper proposes a new method for segmenting the Gleason tissues (patch-wise) in order to grade PCa from the whole slide images (WSI). Also, the proposed approach encompasses two main contributions: 1) A synergy of hybrid dilation factors and hierarchical decomposition of latent space representation for effective Gleason…
