Model Facts


The Gleason score is the most important prognostic marker for prostate cancer patients but suffers from significant inter-observer variability. We developed a fully automated system using deep learning that can grade prostate biopsies following the Gleason Grading System. A description of our method and research can be found in the paper: "Automated deep learning system for Gleason grading of prostate biopsies: a development and validation study". A summary is available in a blog post on our study.
