Specifically, U.S. patent No. 9,767,555 provides methods and apparatus associated with distinguishing invasive adenocarcinoma from in situ adenocarcinoma, the university said. The technology involves generating an invasiveness score for a region of tissue on 3D radiological images; the extent of the disease is then spatially mapped on the 3D radiological images by combining a set of 3D histological reconstructions with the radiology images.
Mirabela Rusu, a former postdoctoral fellow of Madabhushi's and currently a research scientist at GE Global Research, is a co-inventor on the patent. Madabhushi is the F. Alex Nason professor II of biomedical engineering and director of the university's Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics.
