Similar Image Search for Histopathology
This growing adoption of “digital pathology” provides opportunities to create digital archives of pathology images. Similar image retrieval can help effectively search and understand these large histopathology datasets. SMILY tool uses deep neural network to understand similar between histopathology images. In our work, we show SMILY ability to retrieve images which share clinical features with query image. Such tool can be used for education, research and diagnosis. We also show the importance of human computer interaction tools to bridge the semantic gap by giving interactive refinement tools that empower end-users to guide what similarity means on-the-fly.
