IR imaging data and its use in histologic classification. (Upper row) IR imaging data (b) is acquired for an unstained tissue section (a). The data is then classified into cell types and a classified image (c) is obtained. The colors indicate cell types in a histologic model of prostate tissue. This method is robust and applied to hundreds of tissue samples using the tissue microarray (TMA) format. (Lower row) H&E (d) and IR classified (e) images of a part of the TMAs used.
