Talk by Dr. Sarder at HIMA Workshop

Dr. Sarder presented a talk titled “Problems and opportunities in computational renal pathology” at the Histopathological Image Analysis (HIMA) Workshop, Pathology Informatics Meeting, Pittsburgh, PA.

In this talk, Dr. Sarder introduced computational pathology using examples from renal pathology, and discussed the applications and challenges of applying machine learning tools for detection, segmentation, quantification, and classification of microanatomical structures from renal histology giga-pixel size whole slide images. He also discussed ongoing efforts on computational data fusion integrating imaging morphometric and molecular omics data, and potential impact of the resulting fused data in biomedical research. The talk was concluded by discussing the barriers that still need to be addressed before adopting these developed tools in clinical practice.
