Image Processing And Analysis Framework

View page
US Patent:
7116440, Oct 3, 2006
Filed:
Feb 26, 2004
Appl. No.:
10/787330
Inventors:
Ole Eichhorn - Westlake Village CA, US
Allen Olson - San Diego CA, US
Assignee:
Aperio Technologies, Inc. - Vista CA
International Classification:
G06F 15/00
US Classification:
358 15, 358 118
Abstract:
A system and method for processing and analyzing virtual microscopy digital images (“virtual slides”) is provided. The system comprises an algorithm server that maintains or has access to a plurality of image processing and analysis routines. The algorithm server additionally has access to a plurality of virtual slides. The algorithm server executes a selected routine on an identified virtual slide and provides the resulting data. The virtual slide can be accessed locally or remotely across a network. Similarly, the image processing routines can be obtained from local storage or across a network, or both. Advantageously, certain common sub-routines may be stored locally for inclusion in other local or remotely obtained routines. Access to image processing and analysis may be restricted through a monitor process that authenticates requests to process or view virtual slides. Variations in restrictions to images provide a rich diversity in access levels that allow sharing of virtual slides and demonstrations of image processing algorithms.

Systems And Methods For Image Pattern Recognition

US Patent:
7257268, Aug 14, 2007
Filed:
Feb 9, 2004
Appl. No.:
10/774971
Inventors:
Ole Eichhorn - Westlake Village CA, US
Dirk G. Soenksen - Carlsbad CA, US
Assignee:
Aperio Technologies, Inc. - Vista CA
International Classification:
G06K 9/36
US Classification:
382253
Abstract:
Systems and methods for image pattern recognition comprise digital image capture and encoding using vector quantization (“VQ”) of the image. A vocabulary of vectors is built by segmenting images into kernels and creating vectors corresponding to each kernel. Images are encoded by creating a vector index file having indices that point to the vectors stored in the vocabulary. The vector index file can be used to reconstruct an image by looking up vectors stored in the vocabulary. Pattern recognition of candidate regions of images can be accomplished by correlating image vectors to a pre-trained vocabulary of vector sets comprising vectors that correlate with particular image characteristics. In virtual microscopy, the systems and methods are suitable for rare-event finding, such as detection of micrometastasis clusters, tissue identification, such as locating regions of analysis for immunohistochemical assays, and rapid screening of tissue samples, such as histology sections arranged as tissue microarrays (TMAs).

System And Method For Data Management In A Linear-Array-Based Microscope Slide Scanner

US Patent:
7428324, Sep 23, 2008
Filed:
Apr 21, 2006
Appl. No.:
11/379648
Inventors:
Greg J. Crandall - Rancho Santa Fe CA, US
Ole Eichhorn - Westlake Village CA, US
Allen H. Olson - San Diego CA, US
Dirk G. Soenksen - Carlsbad CA, US
Assignee:
Aperio Technologies, Inc. - Vista CA
International Classification:
G06K 9/00
US Classification:
382128
Abstract:
A data management system and method for processing, storing, and viewing the extremely large imagery data that is rapidly produced by a linear-array-based microscope slide scanner is provided. The system receives, processes, and stores imagery data produced by the linear-array-based microscope slide scanner at approximately 3 GB per minute. The data are received as a series of overlapping image stripes and combined into a seamless and contiguous baseline image. The baseline image is logically mapped into a plurality of regions that are individually addressed to facilitate viewing and manipulation of the baseline image. The data management system enables imagery data compression while scanning and capturing new image stripes. This advantageously eliminates the overhead associated with storing uncompressed image stripes. The image compression also creates intermediate level images, thereby organizing the baseline image into a variable level pyramid structure referred to as a virtual slide.

Systems And Methods For Creating And Viewing Three Dimensional Virtual Slides

US Patent:
7463761, Dec 9, 2008
Filed:
May 27, 2005
Appl. No.:
11/140265
Inventors:
Ole Eichhorn - Westlake Village CA, US
Greg Crandall - Rancho Santa Fe CA, US
Steven Hashagen - Albuquerque NM, US
Dirk Soenksen - Carlsbad CA, US
Mark Wrenn - Oceanside CA, US
Assignee:
Aperio Technologies, Inc. - Vista CA
International Classification:
G06K 9/00
US Classification:
382133, 382154
Abstract:
Systems and methods for creating and viewing three dimensional virtual slides are provided. One or more microscope slides are positioned in an image acquisition device that scans the specimens on the slides and makes two dimensional images at a medium or high resolution. This two dimensional images are provided to an image viewing workstation where they are viewed by an operator who pans and zooms the two dimensional image and selects an area of interest for scanning at multiple depth levels (Z-planes). The image acquisition device receives a set of parameters for the multiple depth level scan, including a location and a depth. The image acquisition device then scans the specimen at the location in a series of Z-plane images, where each Z-plane image corresponds to a depth level portion of the specimen within the depth parameter.

Filed:
Feb 26, 2004
Appl. No.:
10/787773
Inventors:
Ole Eichhorn - Westlake Village CA, US
Anne Brumme - Carlsbad CA, US
Assignee:
Aperio Technologies, Inc. - Vista CA
International Classification:
G06K 9/00
US Classification:
382133, 382128
Abstract:
Virtual slide image data and corresponding information are stored in a data storage area on a virtual slide image server. A client viewer requests image data at a particular resolution. The image server obtains corresponding image data from the data storage area at a resolution nearest to the requested resolution. The image data is then sent to the client viewer. The client viewer receives the image data and scales the image data to the requested resolution prior to displaying the image data.
