As summer ends and school begins, I am finishing up an integral part of my Ciliopathy diagnosis project at The Goldenberg Lab
, creating a cell counting algorithm. For most Pathologists and Researchers who work with cell images, an important and useful piece of information gathered is the cell count, which acts as the basis for many other important decisions. Many pathology images contain hundreds or even thousands of cells and the currently used method, counting by hand,
and prone to human error. Using Computer Vision algorithms and neural networks, I have built a system to automatically
count the number of cells within seconds. The system will speed up the diagnostic process and will soon be ready for deployment!
