Computer-Aided Detection Systems, Pathology Slide, Blood Cell Classification

Definition : Computer-aided detection systems designed for automated in-vitro detection, identification, and pre-classification of blood cells in peripheral blood and/or other body fluid samples placed on slides (i.e., smears). The system may either digitize the original information from the slide or use information provided by other digital systems. These systems provide automated location and identification of red blood cells (RBC) and white blood cells (WBC) and they pre-classify RBCs according to their morphology and WBCs according to their different types. They also provide an overview image of the platelets and identify areas of interest in the slides for pathology review. These systems usually include an optical scanning system (i.e., a slide feeder, microscope, and camera), a computerized unit with appropriate software, a display, and recorders for archiving of digital images; they may include communication capabilities. Blood cell classification systems are intended to facilitate uniform processing of hematology smears and/or blood cells in other body fluids (e.g., cerebrospinal fluid) by laboratory technicians.
