 Revolutionizing Cancer Cell Imaging:

(Python Tensor Object Locator Examining Microfluidic Instruments)


The Ptolemi project, short for Python Tensorflow Object Locator Examining Microfluidic Instruments, was developed to address the challenges in cancer cell imaging. Initiated in collaboration with Dr. Doron Gerber and his team, Ptolemi aims to automate the traditionally manual process of counting and labeling cancer cells in microscope images.


When Dr. Doron Gerber and his team faced the arduous task of manually analyzing cancer cell images, they recognized the need for a more efficient solution. The manual process was time-consuming and prone to errors, limiting the ability to quickly and accurately diagnose patients. This realization led to the inception of Ptolemi, a project that combines machine learning and microfluidic technology to revolutionize cancer cell imaging.

A significant breakthrough was achieved when Ptolemi could rapidly process a large set of biopsy images from diverse patient samples. The system's ability to accurately identify and label different cell types allowed for more precise diagnoses. This not only improved the speed of diagnosis but also enabled the development of more personalized treatment plans. Patients benefited from quicker, tailored interventions, which significantly enhanced their outcomes.
