Automatic Grading of Breast Cancer Whole-Slide Histopathology Images
Grading of tissue based on microscopic images is a common and challenging task. We propose a new method for grading of wholeslide histology images of invasive breast carcinoma, which is based on mitotic cell detection. The method combines a threshold-based attention mechanism and a deep neural network for mitotic cell detection and grading. Our mitotic cell detector is learned from scratch using object centroids. We achieved competitive results in the recent MICCAI TUPAC16 challenge.
