Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is a non-invasive breast cancer that can progress into invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC). Studies suggest DCIS is often overtreated since a considerable part of DCIS lesions may never progress into IDC. Lower grade lesions have a lower progression speed and risk, possibly allowing treatment de-escalation. However, studies show significant inter-observer variation in DCIS grading. Automated image analysis may provide an objective solution to address high… Expand

Breast invasive ductal carcinoma classification on whole slide images with weakly-supervised and transfer learning
An Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (IDC) Whole Slide Image (WSI) classification model is trained using transfer learning and weakly-supervised learning to aid pathologists in their pathological diagnosis workflows. Expand


The effect of an e-learning module on grading variation of (pre)malignant breast lesions
This study shows that an e-learning module, in which pathologists and residents are trained in histologic grading of DCIS and IBC, is a feasible and promising tool to decrease grading variation of (pre)malignant breast lesions. Expand
Ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast (DCIS) with heterogeneity of nuclear grade: prognostic effects of quantitative nuclear assessment
Image analysis provided reproducible assessments of nuclear features which quantitated differences in nuclear grading for patients and indicated prognostically significant differences in DCIS, and may contribute additional information to prognostic assessments of which patients are likely to develop invasive disease. Expand
Interobserver reproducibility of the Lagios nuclear grading system for ductal carcinoma in situ.
With adherence to specific criteria, IR in the classification of DCIS cases can be obtained in most cases, although further refinements are needed, especially if grading will influence future therapy. Expand
Evaluation of ductal carcinoma in situ grade via triple-modal molecular imaging of B7-H3 expression
Molecular imaging of B7-H3 expression may allow for active surveillance of DCIS, a pre-invasive lesion which may not progress to invasive carcinoma, yet surgery remains the mainstay treatment. Expand
Reproducibility of new classification schemes for the pathology of ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast.
Both the new classification schemes assessed in this study were an improvement over the traditional architectural classification system for ductal carcinoma in situ, and resulted in more reproducible pathological assignment of cases. Expand
Interobserver variability in upfront dichotomous histopathological assessment of ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast: the DCISion study
The interobserver variability among 39 pathologists who performed upfront dichotomous evaluation of 149 consecutive ductal carcinomas in situ is at most acceptable, although it varies among the different histopathological features. Expand
Automated Detection of DCIS in Whole-Slide H&E Stained Breast Histopathology Images
This paper presents and evaluates a fully automatic method for detection of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) in digitized hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stained histopathological slides of breast tissue, which is the first DCIS detection algorithm working fully automatically on WSIs. Expand
Automated deep-learning system for Gleason grading of prostate cancer using biopsies: a diagnostic study.
An automated deep-learning system to grade prostate biopsies following the Gleason grading standard achieved a performance similar to pathologists for Gle Mason grading and could potentially contribute to prostate cancer diagnosis. Expand
Diagnostic Assessment of Deep Learning Algorithms for Detection of Lymph Node Metastases in Women With Breast Cancer
In the setting of a challenge competition, some deep learning algorithms achieved better diagnostic performance than a panel of 11 pathologists participating in a simulation exercise designed to mimic routine pathology workflow; algorithm performance was comparable with an expert pathologist interpreting whole-slide images without time constraints.

Significant inter- and intra-laboratory variation in grading of ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast: a nationwide study of 4901 patients in the Netherlands
There is an urgent need for nationwide standardization of grading practices for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), especially since the future management of DCIS may alter significantly depending on histologic grade. Expand
