Classification and Segmentation of Dendritic Cells

By R. A. / 18/07/2018 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

Dry eye disease (DED) is one of the most common ophthalmic disorders. Inflammation of the ocular surface is controlled by corneal antigen-presenting cells called dendritic cells (DCs), which induce T-cell activation, and play a critical role in the pathogenesis of DED. The density of corneal DC i...

Cell Classification software

By R. A. / 13/06/2017 / RSIP Vision Learns / No Comments

One ml of human blood contains roughly 5 million red blood cells. This huge quantity is only a fraction of what is found in one ml of blood, which contains roughly 60% fluid (plasma) and the remaining white cells, red blood cells and platelets. The composition of blood is examined routinely in ho...
