Deep Learning Models for Digital Pathology

  title={Deep Learning Models for Digital Pathology},
  author={A{\"i}cha Bentaieb and G. Hamarneh},
Histopathology images; microscopy images of stained tissue biopsies contain fundamental prognostic information that forms the foundation of pathological analysis and diagnostic medicine. However, diagnostics from histopathology images generally rely on a visual cognitive assessment of tissue slides which implies an inherent element of interpretation and hence subjectivity. Access to digitized histopathology images enabled the development of computational systems aiming at reducing manual…

Stain normalization of histopathology images using generative adversarial networks
A novel approach to computational histopathology by introducing a parametric, fully unsupervised generative model based on end-to-end machine learning in the framework of generative adversarial networks that outperforms most state-of-the-art methods.
Accurate and reproducible invasive breast cancer detection in whole-slide images: A Deep Learning approach for quantifying tumor extent
This study presents a new method that employs a convolutional neural network for detecting presence of invasive tumor on whole slide images that involves training the classifier on nearly 400 exemplars from multiple different sites, and scanners, and then independently validating on almost 200 cases from The Cancer Genome Atlas.
Deep learning as a tool for increased accuracy and efficiency of histopathological diagnosis
It is found that all slides containing prostate cancer and micro- and macro-metastases of breast cancer could be identified automatically while 30–40% of the slides containing benign and normal tissue could be excluded without the use of any additional immunohistochemical markers or human intervention.
Automatic segmentation of histopathological slides of renal tissue using deep learning
Results show that convolutional neural net- works are able to accurately perform segmentation tasks in renal tissue, with accuracies of 90% for most classes.
Context-aware stacked convolutional neural networks for classification of breast carcinomas in whole-slide histopathology images
A context-aware stacked convolutional neural networks (CNN) for classification of breast WSIs into normal/benign, DCIS, and invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) is presented, demonstrating its potential for routine diagnostics.
Creating synthetic digital slides using conditional generative adversarial networks: application to Ki67 staining
A novel method to create artificial datasets in silico with known ground truth is proposed, allowing us to analyze the accuracy, precision, and intra- and inter-observer variability in a systematic manner and compare different computer analysis approaches.
A Deep Learning Architecture for Image Representation, Visual Interpretability and Automated Basal-Cell Carcinoma Cancer Detection
A deep learning architecture for automated basal cell carcinoma cancer detection that integrates image representation learning, image classification and result interpretability is presented and Experimental results show that the representation learned from a large histology image data set has the best overall performance.
Classification of tumor histopathology via sparse feature learning
A method based on a variation of the restricted Boltzmann machine (RBM) that learns intrinsic features of the image signature in an unsupervised fashion to decompose whole slide images of histology sections into distinct patches so that statistics of distinct histopathology can be linked with the outcome.

A deep regression network (DRN) is proposed that consisted of a downsampling path for extracting the high level information and an upsampled path for outputting the score map with original input size, thus it can be trained in an end-to-end way.
Stacked Sparse Autoencoder (SSAE) for Nuclei Detection on Breast Cancer Histopathology Images
A Stacked Sparse Autoencoder, an instance of a deep learning strategy, is presented for efficient nuclei detection on high-resolution histopathological images of breast cancer and out-performed nine other state of the art nuclear detection strategies.
