At a Glance
- Color management is vital for many technologies – but none so much as histopathology
- Features of digital images, such as color, vary between scanners
- Because color is not standardized between devices and images, AI algorithms may not perform as accurately and reliably as they could with uniform input
- One approach to achieving uniformity involves the use of a special slide to standardize devices to real-world histopathology colors
Look around you and you’ll appreciate that “color management” is applied to a broad mix of everyday technology – from televisions to cameras; industrial label presses to cinema screens. Accurate, reliable color is deemed so important that these industries take extensive steps to mitigate any reduction in its performance or appearance. The integrity of color in medical images should be no different – in fact, given the implications of the technology, it’s where standards should be the most stringent of all!
