    Bioimage informatics for prostate cancer research

    Abstract: In this presentation, an overview on image analysis related research Prostate Cancer Research Center (BioMediTech, University of Tampere/Tampere University of Technology, Tampere Finland) is given. Our emphasis is in the analysis of histological images, and we utilize automated whole slide scanning and stacked sections through the tissue. We develop methods for quantification of tissue properties from digital pathology images, with special focus in automated analysis and numerical description of regions of interest in tissue, and their subsequent analysis using machine learning. Further, we build 3D models of the organ through reconstructing from scanned histology slides, preserving the spatial information in quantitative analysis.
