content based image retrieval
Background: Pathology departments and biobanks are increasingly using Digital Pathology (DP) images for sharing of research results, ring trials, education, fast second-opinion diagnostics, pathology panels, digital back-up of slides, image analysis algorithms, and etcetera. To fully exploit the potential of DP, the BIOPOOL project develops software for extracting and gathering DP slides with well defined associated data from multiple biobanks and pathology archives to create pools of images, as biobanks networks, on which clinicians and researchers can search for reference, score for similarities with their own images using an innovative Content Based Image Retrieval system, and perform indepth image analyses. Methods: The BIOPOOL Proof-of-Concept (PoC) with minimal, critical functionality serves as the basis on which the system will be further developed. For this PoC we are studying existing DP image formats and systems that could be of use, designed both PoC and end-phase ...
