Wednesday, September 30, 2020 - 16:34

Anant Madabhushi, PhD, and Cheng Lu, PhD, from the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics (CCIPD) were awarded the patent: “Predicting cancer recurrence using local co-occurrence of cell morphology (LoCoM)”. 

United States Serial Number (USSN): 10,783,627, September 22nd, 2020.

Inventors: Madabhushi; Anant (Shaker Heights, OH), Lu; Cheng (Cleveland Heights, OH)

Abstract: Embodiments include apparatus for predicting cancer recurrence based on local co-occurrence of cell morphology (LoCoM). The apparatus includes image acquisition circuitry that identifies and segments at least one cellular nucleus represented in an image of a region of tissue demonstrating cancerous pathology; local nuclei graph (LNG) circuitry that constructs an LNG based on the at least one cellular nucleus, and computes a set of nuclear morphology features for a nucleus represented in the LNG; LoCoM circuitry that constructs a co-occurrence matrix based on the nuclear morphology features, computes a set of LoCoM features for the co-occurrence matrix, and computes a LoCoM signature for the image based on the set of LoCoM features; progression circuitry that generates a probability that the region of tissue will experience cancer progression based on the LoCoM signature, and classifies the region of tissue as a progressor or non-progressor based on the probability.

Bringing AI to agriculture: Counting cattle is only the beginning for Shoshana Ginsburg, PhD ’15. Her startup Quanterra put a smart eye in the sky.

As a graduate student at the Case School of Engineering, Shoshana Ginsburg excelled in an emerging area of biomedical science called medical image analysis. She joined the fledgling Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics in 2012 and conducted significant research using machine learning to characterize tumor types in prostate cancer.
