SD-Layer: Stain Deconvolutional Layer for CNNs in Medical Microscopic Imaging


Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) are typically trained in the RGB color space. However, in medical imaging, we believe that pixel stain quantities offer a fundamental view of the interaction between tissues and stain chemicals. Since the optical density (OD) colorspace allows to compute pixel stain quantities from pixel RGB intensities using the Beer… (More)
