Breast Cancer Mitosis Detector


This model takes a 64 x 64 PNG image file extracted from the whole slide image as input, and outputs the predicted probability of the image containing mitosis. The model consists of a modified ResNet-50 model trained on the TUPAC16 auxiliary mitosis dataset. For more information and additional features, check out the deep-histopath repository on GitHub.
