Despite significant advances in digital pathology and automation sciences, current diagnostic practice for cancer detection primarily relies on a qualitative manual inspection of tissue architecture and cell and nuclear morphology in stained biopsies using low-magnification, two-dimensional (2D) brightfield microscopy. The efficacy of this process is limited by inter-operator variations in sample preparation and imaging, and by inter-observer variability in assessment. Over the past few decades, the predictive value quantitative morphology measurements derived from computerized analysis of micrographs has been compromised by the inability of 2D microscopy to capture information in the third dimension, and by the anisotropic spatial resolution inherent …
