Histological classification of colorectal polyps plays a critical role in both screening for colorectal cancer and care of affected patients. In this study, we developed a deep neural network for classification of four major colorectal polyp types on digitized histopathology slides and compared its performance to local pathologists' diagnoses at the point-of-care retrieved from corresponding pathology labs. We evaluated the deep neural network on an internal dataset of 157 histopathology slides…

Classification of colorectal tissue images from high throughput tissue microarrays by ensemble deep learning methods
The authors' high-accuracy algorithm for colorectal tissue classification in high-throughput TMAs is amenable to images from different institutions, core sizes and stain intensity, which helps to reduce error in TMA core evaluations with previously given labels.


Classification and Mutation Prediction from Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Histopathology Images using Deep Learning
The findings suggest that deep learning models can offer both specialists and patients a fast, accurate and inexpensive detection of cancer types or gene mutations, and thus have a significant impact on cancer treatment.
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.
Deep learning based tissue analysis predicts outcome in colorectal cancer
The results suggest that state-of-the-art deep learning techniques can extract more prognostic information from the tissue morphology of colorectal cancer than an experienced human observer.

The DCNN model showed similar sensitivity and improved specificity in identifying patients with thyroid cancer compared with a group of skilled radiologists and showed improved performance in identifying thyroid cancer patients versusskilled radiologists.
Looking Under the Hood: Deep Neural Network Visualization to Interpret Whole-Slide Image Analysis Outcomes for Colorectal Polyps
This work proposes a deep-learning-based image analysis approach that not only can accurately classify different types of polyps in whole-slide images, but also generates major regions and features on the slide through a model visualization approach.

Reliability in the classification of advanced colorectal adenomas.
It is suggested that future epidemiological studies of advanced adenomas should use broad categories, such as high-grade versus low-grade dysplasia, include central review of all slides, and take measurement error into account in sample size calculations.
Interobserver variability in assessing dysplasia and architecture in colorectal adenomas: a multicentre Canadian study
Improvement in interobserver agreement in classifying adenoma architecture suggests that national guidelines can be useful in disseminating knowledge, however, the variability in the diagnosis of HGD, even following guideline review suggests the need for ongoing knowledge-transfer exercises.
