A library that includes four components: preprocessing tools, regressor tools, classification tools, and segmentation tools.
- The preprocessing tools include scripts to extract the patches from several WSI’s scales.
- The scale regressor tools include scripts to generate the input data, train, test and use a scale regressor.
- The classification tools include scripts for training a CNN in a fully supervised fashion.
- The segmentation tools include models such as HookNet for the semantic segmentation in histopathology whole-slide images.
