Biomarkers Identification and Quantification

This method assists the computerized quantification of immunohistochemical areas, where a biomarker was used to identify specific kinds of cells, such as cancerous ones. In this system the physician selects some positive reaction areas from the microscopy image, and then image processing techniques learn a model able to recognize similar patterns in other image samples. This method reduces the error-prone and subjectivity presented in the diagnostic process, providing a more robust quantification method for such biomarkers.
