Title: AUTOMATED METHOD FOR ASSESSING CANCER RISK USING TISSUE SAMPLES, AND SYSTEM THEREFOR
Abstract:
An automated method and system for determining the risk of developing a cancer in a subject, the method comprising preparing a tissue sample obtained from the subject for visually identifying at least one biological marker associated with the cancer, digitally scanning the prepared tissue sample, analyzing the scanned image of the tissue sample to identify regions of interest, quantifying at least one parameter associated with the marker, and executing an algorithm using the quantified parameter to calculate a risk score, wherein the risk score is representative of the risk of the individual developing the cancer.
