Computer-Aided Detection Systems, Pathology Slide, Prostate Tissue
Definition : Computer-aided detection systems that analyze digital information (typically digital images) from prostate tissue histologic slides to detect 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 in prostate tissue. Some systems may include capabilities of archiving and/or communication of view and annotated digital images of pathology scanned slides. Prostate tissue computer-aided detection systems are used for prostate cancer screening and in combination with molecular markers and clinical patient data to aid in the prediction of prostate cancer recurrence.
