First paragraph (this article has no abstract)
Digital image analysis (DA) brings new opportunities to enhance breast cancer pathology testing by providing tools to read tissue-based visual data in a more precise, accurate, and high-throughput manner compared to traditional evaluation performed by a pathologist. The applications may vary from very practical computer-assisted diagnosis approaches to obtain more reproducible estimates of biomarker expression to more sophisticated efforts to retrieve and aggregate multi-modal and multi-dimensional data providing integrated metamarkers of the disease [1,2].
