Label Extraction and AI for Digital Pathology

Tissue-based studies generate large amounts of histology data containing important biological information in the form of imagery and metadata. These digital pathology slides are labeled using text and barcodes for their identification. The older technologies used printed or handwritten labels for specimen labeling. The Label Extraction Solution uses state-of-the-art OCR technologies, image processing, and AI to read, understand, and store label data from digital pathology slides. Additional manual validation of the data leads to a highly automated process which reduces the time to search and find slides. The extracted label text is translated into a structured data format, stored in a database with search capabilities. This solution has significantly saved time and effort for pathologists by avoiding repeat sample orders, quick access to historic data, and accuracy.
