ProMort Image Management System
The goal of the ProMort project is to conduct a large scale epidemiological study of patients that have been diagnosed with a benign form of prostatic cancer but nevertheless died before expected.
The specific goal of the ProMort Image Management System is to create a collection of fully annotated images related to biopsies slides.
- new approach to digital pathology WSI (Whole Slide Images) annotation by providing a specialised platform which can be used to implement different kind of annotation workflows (from a single reviewer to collaborative annotation between two or more specialists);
- system simple to use yet powerful enough to produce high quality structured annotations of the virtual slides and to maximize the precision of features detection (like the presence of a particular tumor) by combining multiple reviews.
