With the rise of deep learning, there has been increased interest in using neural networks for histopathology image analysis, a field that investigates the properties of biopsy or resected specimens that are traditionally manually examined under a microscope by pathologists. In histopathology image analysis, however, challenges such as limited data, costly annotation, and processing high-resolution and variable-size images create a high barrier of entry and make it difficult to quickly iterate… 

Evaluating histopathology transfer learning with ChampKit

An extensible, fully reproducible benchmarking toolkit that consists of a broad collection of patch-level image classification tasks across different histopathology tasks, ChampKit enables a way to systematically document the performance impact of proposed improvements in models and methodology.

Histokt: Cross Knowledge Transfer in Computational Pathology

This paper creates a standardization workflow for aggregating existing histopathological data, and uses weight distillation to share knowledge between models without additional training, finding that hard to learn, multi-class datasets benefit most from pretraining, and a two stage learning framework incorporating a large source domain such as ImageNet allows for better utilization of smaller datasets.

On the Efficiency of Subclass Knowledge Distillation in Classification Tasks

This work introduces a novel knowledge distillation frame- work for classification tasks where information on existing subclasses is available and taken into consideration and proposes the so-called Subclass Knowledge Distillation (SKD) framework, which is the process of transferring the subclasses’ prediction knowledge from a large teacher model into a smaller student one.

Calibrating Histopathology Image Classifiers using Label Smoothing

This paper proposes several label smoothing methods that utilize per-image annotator agreement and finds that they substantially improve model calibration, while maintaining (or even improving) accuracy.

Detection of Colorectal Adenocarcinoma and Grading Dysplasia on Histopathologic Slides Using Deep Learning

The results suggest that such deep learning models can potentially assist pathologists in grading colorectal dysplasia, detecting adenocarcinoma, prescreening, and prioritizing the reviewing of suspicious cases to improve the turnaround time for patients with a high risk of coloreCTal cancer.

Enabling Intelligent IoTs for Histopathology Image Analysis Using Convolutional Neural Networks

This paper implements a quantized ResNet model on two histopathology image datasets to optimize the inference power consumption and shows that lower bit-width implementations yield higher resource utilization and a lower memory bottleneck ratio.

Medical image analysis based on transformer: A Review

This paper illustrates the principle of the attention mechanism, and the detailed structures of the transformer, and depicts how the transformer is adopted into the CV, and organizes the transformer-based medical image analysis applications in the sequence of different CV tasks.

Subclass Knowledge Distillation with Known Subclass Labels

This work introduces a novel knowledge distillation framework for classification tasks where information on existing subclasses is available and taken into consideration, and proposes the so-called Subclass Knowledge Distillation (SKD), a process of transferring the knowledge of predicted subclasses from a teacher to a smaller student.

Deep Learning for Classification of Colorectal Polyps on Whole-slide Images

An automatic image analysis method that can accurately classify different types of colorectal polyps on whole-slide images to help pathologists with this characterization and diagnosis and can reduce the cognitive burden on pathologists and improve their efficacy in histopathological characterization and follow-up recommendations.

Classification and mutation prediction from non–small cell lung cancer histopathology images using deep learning

A deep convolutional neural network model is trained on whole-slide images obtained from The Cancer Genome Atlas to accurately and automatically classify them into LUAD, LUSC or normal lung tissue and predicts the ten most commonly mutated genes in LUAD.
