Automated Gleason scoring

Based on results from image analysis and segmentation, we have developed methods for automatic classification of tissue samples. PathTool calculates the Gleason score automatically in prostate cancer samples. Traditionally this is a subjective evaluation made by trained pathologists. PathTool provides an accurate and reproducible result that could give the patient his Gleason score within seconds, independent of a pathologist. This work is now being validated through a study at the University College, London (UCL).
