Computerized image analysis systems can assist medical doctors in the analysis and/or interpretation of medical images. These systems can automate tasks that are laborious and time-consuming for humans, increase analysis objectivity (i.e., quantitative assessment), and reduce inter- and intra-observer variabilities. Computerized image analysis is relatively new in histopathology, as compared to other medical imaging modalities. With the rise of whole slide scanner technology, there is a growing interest and opportunity for computerized image analysis in histopathology; however, methods developed in more established areas, such as radiographic imaging, are not simply transferable to histopathology due to their differences in appearance in terms of colour and texture and large image size. This talk will focus on two applications for computerized image analysis: 1) Hischsprung's disease, and 2) placenta-mediated diseases.
