Roche Digital Pathology Image Analysis Algorithms

Roche said Monday that it has introduced two algorithms to automate analysis of digital pathology images for diagnosis of breast cancer on its uPath software system. The uPath HER2 (4B5) algorithm helps pathologists determine whether tumors contain HER2 cancer biomarkers, while the dual ISH analysis looks for HER2 gene amplification, according to the Swiss company. Both produce heatmaps to lead pathologists to "areas of interest" that might contain cells that can help physicians develop the most promising treatment plans.
