First paragraph (this article has no abstract)
Computer aided analysis of virtual slide images has become an increasingly popular research topic and area of development. Novel applications are aimed for instance at automation of certain stages in sample assessment and assay readout (e.g. segmentation, detection, etc.)  or for reproducible measurement of a sample’s visual appearance (e.g. grading, morphological classes etc.) .
