Digital Pathology

Reference number
Funding from Vinnova SEK 297 500
Project duration December 2015 - November 2016
Status Ongoing

Purpose and goal

The purpose of the feasibility study has been for Saab and Karolinska Hospital and Department of Pathology and Cytology to create knowledge about how and to what degree Saab image processing algorithms can be used in health care, especially in pathology.

Expected results and effects

With the help of SAAB´s image processing it has been demonstrated that the algorithm has the potential to be applied in health care and be of support for the analysis of pathological specimens - digital pathology. A complete system means that monotonous work done today can be reduced by automatically analyzing samples that today are manually analyzed in the microscope.

Planned approach and implementation

After ethical approval the Department of Pathology and Cytology at the Karolinska Hospital contributed a number of annotated (selected) samples scanned at Karolinska Institutet. The samples were transferred to digital images and then transferred to SAAB for testing the algorithm in the image processing model.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
