Cancer Diagnosis

dnaploidy.jpg

An abnormal increase in DNA content in the cell could indicate cancer. DNA Ploidy is a test that determines DNA content in cancerous cells, being a valuable adjunct to cytologic and histologic examination in certain tumors, providing additional diagnostic information.

At ImageProVision Technology Pvt. Ltd., we have developed algorithms that help with this test, through the measurement of DNA content within cells for cancer analysis. Our algorithm identifies stained cells in the images captured through the microscope/scanner. The analysing software identifies various cell features namely the size, shape, colour and intensity, and classifies the epithelial cells, stroma and lymph nodes, while the algorithm computes their DNA content using the Integrated Optical Density (IOD) method. The total DNA content obtained reflects the possibility of cancer.
