Title Automated imaging and analysis of Glomuerli in TEM by fusion of CNN and LBP
Abstract Glomerulal structures in kidney tissue have to be analysed at a nanometer scale for several medical diagnoses. They are therefore commonly imaged using Transmission Electron Microscopy. The high resolution produces large amounts of data and requires long acquisition time, which makes automated imaging and glomerulus detection a desired option. We explore a deep learning approach for detecting Glomerulus and its characteristic substructures. To enhance the performance over training based only on intensity images, multiple approaches to fuse the input with texture information encoded in local binary patterns of different scales have been explored.
