Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women. With early diagnosis, some breast cancers are highly curable. However, the concordance rate of breast cancer diagnosis from histology slides by pathologists is unacceptably low. Classifying normal versus tumor breast tissues from breast histology microscopy images is an ideal case to use for deep learning and could help to more reproducibly diagnose breast cancer. This session will discuss using 42 combinations of deep learning models, image data preprocessing techniques, and hyperparameter configurations, with accuracy testing of tumor versus normal classification using the Breast Cancer Histology (BACH) dataset. Results of this process will be shared to demonstrate preprocessing and hyperparameter configurations have a direct impact on the performance of deep neural networks for image classification.

This webinar is part of the 2022 Laboratory Webinar Series.

Laboratory Webinars are a great, inexpensive way to provide continuing education to a large number of employees. The cost for each session is the same regardless of the number of attendees.

Continuing Education

How Does It Work?

What do I need to participate?
You will need a computer with speakers and an internet connection to view the presentation. NSH uses Zoom to facilitate it's webinar program. All sessions will take place at 1:00pm EST.

Do Sessions Qualify for Continuing Education?
Session attendees receive one (1) CEU for participation in a webinar. A live recording of the webinar will be sent appoximately one week of the live webinar and a CEU can be earned by watching it within 1 year of the live air date.

How are the webinars selected?
The NSH Laboratory Webinar Program is curated by a committee of volunteers with subject area expertise and are working in the field. Using their knowledge and topic requests from our audience they curate a balanced program. If you are interested in serving on the program team, or have a topic that you wish to present for the 2023 series please contact
