Virtual Specimen Scout

Virtual Specimen Scout is a joint research project of Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, TU Berlin, VMscope GmbH Berlin and NEXUS AG Villingen-Schwenningen.

Virtual microscopy is on the way to change the game in diagnostic pathology in a very complex manner. Within short time we will have access to petabytes of so called “Whole Slide Images” (WSI). The size of WSI goes up to one Mio. megapixel. Sophisticated techniques and special CBIR (Content Based Image Retrieval) algorithms are required to search in WSI databases for diagnostically similar images or just for relevant substructures. These tasks are the main focus of the project.
