Computer-Aided Detection Systems, Pathology Slide

Definition : Computer-aided detection systems designed to analyze digital information (typically images) from pathology slides to detect cell and tissue abnormalities; they may either digitize the original information or use information provided by digital systems. These systems typically consist of a digitizer or a means to import digital information, a computer capable of using appropriate algorithms, and a display and/or printer to show the detected abnormalities. Pathology slide computer-aided detection systems are intended to facilitate the detection and classification of tissues during in vitro diagnostic. Some systems may include capabilities of archiving and/or communication of view and annotated digital images of pathology scanned slides. Dedicated systems for detection and analysis of tissue (pathology) slides (e.g., Pap smear, prostatic) are available.
