AI for Digital Pathology
With the recent expansions of whole-slide digital scanning, archiving, and high-throughput tissue banks, digital pathology is primed to benefit dramatically from AI. This talk will cover several clinical applications of AI for characterizing histopathological patterns on high-resolution microscopy images for the classification, prognosis, and treatment of cancerous and precancerous lesions.
