Background Non-Hodgkin lymphomas (NHLs) are a diverse group of blood cancers that include any kind of lymphoma except Hodgkin's lymphomas. Types of NHL vary significantly in their severity, from indolent to very aggressive. Lymphomas are types of cancer derived from lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell. Lymphomas are treated by combinations of chemotherapy monoclonal antibodies, immunotherapy, radiation, and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Our team previously reported the development of tools for performing grid-enabled, content-based image retrieval and caBIG compliant data management. We have since begun to investigate the potential use of these tools for evaluating non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma histology specimens to determine the staining and expression patterns of markers CD20, CD21, CD138, and FDC.
Motivation Enhance our understanding of biology of non- Hodgekin’s lymphomas Simultaneously visualize protein expressions and chromosomal changes from tissue sections Multispectual imaging potencially allows for analysing multiple proteins/DNA probes on single cells or on sub-cellular compartments Preserve tissue resources
Our Imaging System Nuance VIS-FLEX multispectral imaging workstation (Cambridge Research & Instrumentation, Inc.) integrated with a Nikon 90i microscope (Micron Optics, Inc.). Specifications –Resolution: 1392x1040x31 –Wavelength: 420nm – 720 nm
Experiment Setup Multispectral images were acquired, after removing auto- fluorescence, at resolution of 1392 x 1042 x 31, where the 31 spectral bands cover wavelengths 420-720 nm. Composite images were created and the expression pattern of each biomarker was digitized and stored. 420nm 460nm 500nm 540nm 580nm 620 nm Multispectral data ( i, j, λ) CIE standard observer color-matching functions λ- cube RGB image

Conclusion Both the chromosome FISH probes and the surface expression of CD20, CD21, CD138 and FDA could be strongly detected using MSI even though the signals were faint using standard fluorescent imaging.
Future Work Continue to improve sample preparation protocol (Qdot with FISH) Compare the accuracy of the computational algorithms in assessing expression levels and biomarker localization in Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma MSI data sets.
