Developed for automatic segmentation of glomeruli in IHC stained kidney tissue

Glomeruli are the filtering units of the kidney. They are located at the beginning of nephrons and consist of a bundle of capillaries. This APP automatically identifies and segments glomeruli in kidney samples stained with various biomarkers including CD68, COL1A1, COLIV, synaptopodin, nephrin, WT1 and/or aSMA. It utilizes articifical intelligence (AI)/deep learning for a robust segmentation.

Details

Quantitative Output variables

The output variable obtained from this protocol is:

  • Total Glomeruli Count

Workflow

Step 1: Load an image

Step 2: Load and run the APP “10145 – IHC, Glomeruli Detection, AI”

Methods

The architectural structure of the deep learning network is a U-Net which is popular for medical image segmentation. The neural network uses a cascade of layers of nonlinear processing units for feature extraction and transformation, with each successive layer using the output from the previous layers as input. U-Net uses an encoder-decoder structure with a contracting path and an expansive path. For more information of the network architecture, see [1].

Staining Protocol

There is no staining protocol available.

Additional information

To run the APP, a NVIDIA GPU with minimum 4 GB RAM is required.
