Multispectral polarization imaging and multipurpose digital staining method for rapid telepathology
Pathological diagnosis, in which cell sections are stained and microscopic observation is used to determine whether they are benign or malignant, is indispensable for definitive diagnosis. In hospitals without a pathologist, it can take more than two weeks to make a definitive diagnosis, making speeding up the process from specimen collection to definitive diagnosis a major challenge. In this study, we aim to develop a method to digitally stain pathology specimens using spectral and polarization information obtained from single-camera, single-exposure imaging of unstained pathology specimens, thereby realizing a support system for rapid telepathology diagnosis that does not require specimen transport and staining processes.


I hope that the results of the research projects supported by this grant will help shorten the time required to a definitive diagnosis, and in the future, I hope to realize a world in which same-day diagnosis is the norm.
