CD-Net: Histopathology Representation Learning using Pyramidal Context-Detail Network

28 Mar 2022  ·  Saarthak Kapse, Srijan Das, Prateek Prasanna ·

Extracting rich phenotype information, such as cell density and arrangement, from whole slide histology images (WSIs), requires analysis of large field of view, i.e more contexual information. This can be achieved through analyzing the digital slides at lower resolution. A potential drawback is missing out on details present at a higher resolution. To jointly leverage complementary information from multiple resolutions, we present a novel transformer based Pyramidal Context-Detail Network (CD-Net). CD-Net exploits the WSI pyramidal structure through co-training of proposed Context and Detail Modules, which operate on inputs from multiple resolutions. The residual connections between the modules enable the joint training paradigm while learning self-supervised representation for WSIs. The efficacy of CD-Net is demonstrated in classifying Lung Adenocarcinoma from Squamous cell carcinoma.
