Abstract [en]

Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) has the high resolving capability and high clinical significance; however, the current manual diagnostic procedure using TEM is complicated and time-consuming, requiring rarely available expertise for analyzing TEM images of the biological specimen. This thesis addresses the bottlenecks of TEM-based analysis by proposing image analysis methods to automate and improve critical time-consuming steps of currently manual diagnostic procedures. The automation is demonstrated on the computer-assisted diagnosis of Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD), a genetic condition for which TEM analysis is considered the gold standard.

The methods proposed for the automated workflow mimic the manual procedure performed by the pathologists to detect objects of interest – diagnostically relevant cilia instances – followed by a computational step to combine information from multiple detected objects to enhance the important structural details. The workflow includes an approach for efficient search through a sample to identify objects and locate areas with a high density of objects of interest in low-resolution images, to perform high-resolution imaging of the identified areas. Subsequently, high-quality objects in high-resolution images are detected, processed, and the extracted information is combined to enhance structural details.

This thesis also addresses the challenges typical for TEM imaging, such as sample drift and deformation, or damage due to high electron dose for long exposure times. Two alternative paths are investigated: (i) different strategies combining short exposure imaging with suitable denoising techniques, including conventional approaches and a proposed deep learning based method, are explored; (ii) conventional interpolation approaches and a proposed deep learning based method are analyzed for super-resolution reconstruction using a single image. For both explored directions, in the best case scenario, the processing time is nearly 20 times faster as compared to the acquisition time for a single long exposure high illumination image. Moreover, the reconstruction approach (ii) requires nearly 16 times lesser data (storage space) and overcomes the need for high-resolution image acquisition.

Finally, the thesis addresses critical needs to enable objective and reliable evaluation of TEM image denoising approaches. A method for synthesizing realistic noise-free TEM reference images is proposed, and a denoising benchmark dataset is generated and made publicly available. The proposed dataset consists of noise-free references along with masks encompassing the critical diagnostic structures. This enables performance evaluation based on the capability of denoising methods to preserve structural details, instead of merely grading them based on the signal to noise ratio improvement and preservation of gross structures.

Abstract [en]

Automated detection of cilia in low magnification transmission electron microscopy images is a central task in the quest to relieve the pathologists in the manual, time consuming and subjective diagnostic procedure. However, automation of the process, specifically in low magnification, is challenging due to the similar characteristics of non-cilia candidates. In this paper, a convolutional neural network classifier is proposed to further reduce the false positives detected by a previously presented template matching method. Adding the proposed convolutional neural network increases the area under Precision-Recall curve from 0.42 to 0.71, and significantly reduces the number of false positive objects.

Abstract [en]

Ultrastructural analysis of cilia cross-sectional images using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) assists the pathologists to diagnose Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia, a genetic disease. The current diagnostic procedure is manual and difficult because of poor signal-to-noise ratio in TEM images. In this paper, we propose an automated multi-step registration approach to register many cilia cross-sectional instances. The novelty of the work is in the utilization of customized weight masks at each registration step to achieve good alignment of the specific cilium regions. Registration is followed by super-resolution reconstruction to enhance the substructural information. Landmarks matching based evaluation of registration results in pixel alignment error of 2.35±1.82" role="presentation">2.35±1.82 pixels, and the subjective analysis of super-resolution reconstructed cilium shows a clear improvement in the visibility of the substructures such as dynein arms, radial spokes, and central pair.

Abstract [en]

Ultrastructural analysis using Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) is a common approach for diagnosing primary ciliary dyskinesia. The manually performed diagnostic procedure is time consuming and subjective, and automation of the process is highly desirable. We aim at automating the search for plausible cilia instances in images at low magnification, followed by acquisition of high magnification images of regions with detected cilia for further analysis. This paper presents a template matching based method for automated detection of cilia objects in low magnification TEM images, where object radii do not exceed 10 pixels. We evaluate the performance of a series of synthetic templates generated for this purpose by comparing automated detection with results manually created by an expert pathologist. The best template achieves a detection at equal error rate of 47% which suffices to identify densely populated cilia regions suitable for high magnification imaging.
