Paper Abstract

The cytologic and histologic detection and diagnosis of disease states and the monitoring of their progression and regression by human visual analysis may be improved by the design and application of an array of new instruments for and approaches to microscope imaging systems. The development of these tools and techniques allows us to visualize and analyze cells and tissues with increased accuracy, sensitivity and objectivity. The Johns Hopkins Biomedical Image Data Analysis System, BIDAS, is being developed to assist humans in their interpretation of clinical cytopathology specimens and in the evaluation and standardization of specimen quality. The BIDAS computer analyses are extremely sensitive to cell changes, they are objective, and their results can be accurately repeated. BIDAS consists of a complex of multifaceted subsystems. An overview of the four primary computer-based subsystems (1. Microscope Imaging and Data Acquisition; 2. Data Communications; 3. Data Processing; and 4. Data Analysis) is presented in this paper.
