Enhanced image similarity analysis system in digital pathology

Enhanced image similarity analysis system in digital pathology In digital pathology, image similarity algorithms are used to find cancer in tissue cells from medical images. However, it is very difficult to apply image similarity algorithms used in general purpose system. Because in the medical field, accuracy and reliability must be perfect when looking for cancer cells by using image similarity techniques to pathology images. To cope with this problem, this paper proposes an efficient similar image search algorithm for digital pathology by applying leveling and tiling scheme on OpenSlide format. Furthermore, we apply image sync method to extract feature key points during image similarity processing. In the experiment, to prove the efficiency of the proposed system, we conduct several experiments including algorithm performance, algorithm accuracy and computation time. The experiments result shows that the proposed system efficiently retrieves similar cell images from pathology images. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Multimedia Tools and Applications Springer Journals

Abstract

In digital pathology, image similarity algorithms are used to find cancer in tissue cells from medical images. However, it is very difficult to apply image similarity algorithms used in general purpose system. Because in the medical field, accuracy and reliability must be perfect when looking for cancer cells by using image similarity techniques to pathology images. To cope with this problem, this paper proposes an efficient similar image search algorithm for digital pathology by applying leveling and tiling scheme on OpenSlide format. Furthermore, we apply image sync method to extract feature key points during image similarity processing. In the experiment, to prove the efficiency of the proposed system, we conduct several experiments including algorithm performance, algorithm accuracy and computation time. The experiments result shows that the proposed system efficiently retrieves similar cell images from pathology images.
