Abstract

The automatic analysis of digital pathology images is becoming of increasing interest for the development of novel therapeutic drugs and of the associated companion diagnostic tests in oncology. A precise quantification of the tumor microenvironment and therefore an accurate segmentation of the tumor extend are critical in this context. In this paper, we present a new approach based on visual context Random Forest to generate high resolution segmentation maps from Deep Learning coarse segmentation maps. Through an example inimmunofluorescence, we show that this method enables an accurate and fast detection of the tumor structures in terms of qualitative and quantitative evaluation against three baseline approaches. For the method to be resilient to the high variability of staining intensity, a novel locally adaptive normalization algorithm is moreover introduced.
