  4. A Deep Learning Model to Improve Pathologist Interpretation of Donor Kidney Biopsies

    SBC: PlatformSTL (DBA for NewVentureIQ LLC)            Topic: 400

    ABSTRACT More people die every year from kidney disease than breast or prostate cancer. Kidney transplantation is life-saving, yet the donor organ shortage and high organ discard rate contributes to 13 deaths daily among patients awaiting transplant. The decision to use or discard a donor kidney relies heavily on microscopic quantitation of chronic damage by pathologists. The current standard of c ...
