Images of interest from #HCS (high content screening) are selected using metadata tags and reviewed in detail using the #OpenSeadragon #iiif viewer that supports deep zooming. This prototype is build on #Jenkins using the #Active-Choices plugin for dynamic UI parameters.

Well written and thought provoking.
A.I. VERSUS M.D.

Thrun blithely envisages a world in which we’re constantly under diagnostic surveillance. Our cell phones would analyze shifting speech patterns to diagnose Alzheimer’s. A steering wheel would pick up incipient Parkinson’s through small hesitations and tremors. A bathtub would perform sequential scans as you bathe, via harmless ultrasound or magnetic resonance, to determine whether there’s a new mass in an ovary that requires investigation. Big Data would watch, record, and evaluate you: we would shuttle from the grasp of one algorithm to the next. To enter Thrun’s world of bathtubs and steering wheels is to enter a hall of diagnostic mirrors, each urging more tests. It’s hard not to be seduced by this vision. Might a medical panopticon that constantly scans us in granular—perhaps even cellular—detail, comparing images day by day, enable us to catch cancer at its earliest stages? Could it provide a breakthrough in cancer detection? It sounds impressive, but there’s a catch: many cancers are destined to be self-limited. We die with them, not of them. What if such an immersive diagnostic engine led to millions of unnecessary biopsies? In medicine, there are cases where early diagnosis can save or prolong life. There are also cases where you’ll be worried longer but won’t live longer. It’s hard to know how much you want to know.

CASE STUDY: STEM CELLS, ASYMMETRIC CELL DIVISION, GASTROINTESTINAL CANCER.
Imaris (4D rendering and clipping plane) helped to understand the mechanisms of asymmetric cell division with non-random chromosomal cosegregation (ACD-NRCC) in gastrointestinal cancer cells which may provide the basis for novel cancer therapy against cancer stem cells. ‪#‎stemcells‬ ‪#‎asymmetric‬
