Lawrence J. Ellison Institute for Transformative Medicine of USC Explores Breakthrough Tissue “Fingerprints” Concept For Cancer Diagnostics Using Oracle Cloud Technology

The Lawrence J. Ellison Institute for Transformative Medicine of USC (“Ellison Institute”) and Oracle reveal a promising two-step technique to train a high-confidence predictive algorithm for enhanced cancer diagnostics. The study uses novel tissue “fingerprints”—discriminating microscopic hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) histologic features—of tumors paired with correct diagnoses to facilitate deep learning in the classification of breast cancer […]
