Image analysis


2IP proposes a support for image analysis with the following softwares:

Whole sections digitalization has opened the way to automation of image analyzes.
In a validation perspective, we showed that the analysis of stained surface or number of stained cells (versus evaluation by a Pathologist) were correlated both for membrane and nuclear markers. In clinical routine, immunostainings are often quantified (visually) as a number of stained cells. However, stained surface quantification offers the advantages of being faster and easier to develop.

The analysis of immunostainings by two different software (Author and TissueIA) is comparable both on positive area and number of stained cells.
