Image-based Risk Score-a Prognostic Predictor of Survival and Outcome from Digital Histopathology
The present invention relates to an image-based computer-aided prognosis (CAP) system and method that seeks to replicate the prognostic power of molecular assays in histopathology and pathological processes, including but not limited to cancer. Using only a tissue slide samples, a mechanism for digital slide scanning, and a computer, the present invention relates to an image- based CAP system and method which aims to overcome many of the drawbacks associated with prognostic molecular assays (e.g. Oncotype DX) including the high cost associated with the assay, limited laboratory facilities with specialized equipment, and length of time between biopsy and prognostic prediction.
