Colorectal Cancer is the fourth most lethal cancer, with 900000 deaths annually. If hotspots of cancerous cells are found around a tumour, it indicates a poor prognosis and highlights cases that would benefit most from additional, life-saving treatment. This is called tumour bud scoring. It is a meticulous task and requires lots of pathologists time. The NHS and other medical systems do not have sufficient human resources to allocate to this, thus it is not currently available despite its value.
Our solutions are virtual slide restaining that allows for the translation of H&E slides to a simulated antibody marker to highlight buds to make human analysis more accurate and speedy. The main product is our fully automated deep learning system to score all buds on a slide.
