1 This research project has been co-financed by the European Union (European Regional Development Fund- ERDF) and Greek national funds through the Operational Program “THESSALY- MAINLAND GREECE AND EPIRUS ” of the National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF ) Region segmentation and classification in digital images of liver tissue Markos G. Tsipouras, Zoi Tsianou, Nikolaos Giannakeas, Alexandros T. Tzallas, Pinelopi Manousou, Epameinondas V. Tsianos,

2 This research project has been co-financed by the European Union (European Regional Development Fund- ERDF) and Greek national funds through the Operational Program “THESSALY- MAINLAND GREECE AND EPIRUS ” of the National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF ) Fibrosis assessment in liver biopsies is currently based on semiquantitative staging scores i.e. Ishak. Collagen proportional area (CPA) assessment through digital image analysis have proven to be more accurate than semiquantitative scores since it can provide quantification of collagen. However, there are no methods presented in the literature for automated digital image analysis for CPA assessment. Introduction

3 This research project has been co-financed by the European Union (European Regional Development Fund- ERDF) and Greek national funds through the Operational Program “THESSALY- MAINLAND GREECE AND EPIRUS ” of the National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF ) Development of an automated robust CPA assessment methodology through digital image analysis Three stage methodology a.Tissue/background separation (image segmentation) b.Tissue characterization (region classification) tissue muscle tissue, blood clots, structural collagen, stain, artifacts, fat c.CPA assessment Aim

4 This research project has been co-financed by the European Union (European Regional Development Fund- ERDF) and Greek national funds through the Operational Program “THESSALY- MAINLAND GREECE AND EPIRUS ” of the National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF ) 94 liver biopsies obtained from different patients picroSirious red stained photographed with a digital camera the images included several tissue and non-tissue areas, annotated by an expert pathologist Dataset

Development of simple to use and robust methodologies for all stages of image analysis can lead to wider spread of CPA assessment through DIA. Conclusions
