  • TL;DR: We apply a commercial color calibration slide for standardising WSIs of prostate biopsies, and the results show that this calibration improves the diagnostic performance of an AI system for detecting prostate cancer.
  • Abstract: Variation in whole slide image (WSI) across different scanners poses a problem for deep learning algorithms. We apply a color calibration slide to standardize WSIs from different sites and evaluate the effect of calibration on a deep learning model for prostate cancer diagnosis. We show that calibration can significantly improve the accuracy of the model.
