Patent NumberUS20210183053 Patent TitleHigh throughput method for accurate prediction of compound-induced liver injury Abstract

A method and system for predicting liver injury in vivo due to hepatocyte damage by a test compound are provided. The method includes acquiring images of fluorescently stained cells obtained from a cell culture in which the cells have been treated with a dose-range of at least the test compound and its vehicle. The cells may be hepatic cells including primary or immortalized hepatocytes, hepatoma cells or induced pluripotent stem cell-derived hepatocyte-like cells. The acquired images are segmented. The method further includes extracting and analyzing one or more phenotypic features from the segmented images, wherein the one or more phenotypic features are selected from the group of intensity, textural, morphological, or ratiometric features consisting of (a) features of DNA, (b) features of RELA (NF-KB p65), and (c) features of actin filaments at different subcellular regions and d) features of cellular organelles and their substructures in the segmented images. Finally, the method includes normalizing results from the treated samples to vehicle controls and predicting the probability of liver injury by the test compound based on test compound-induced normalized changes of the extracted and selected phenotypic features using machine learning methods.

Patent NumberUS11250628 Patent TitleMethod and system for geometrical reconstruction of an internal anatomical structure Abstract

There is provided a method for geometrical reconstruction of an internal anatomical structure using at least one processor based on a set of contours derived from the internal anatomical structure, the set of contours including a first subset of long-axis contours obtained based on a first set of long-axis images of the internal anatomical structure. The method includes: adjusting the set of contours, comprising adjusting the first subset of long-axis contours to correct for motion artefacts in the first set of long-axis images; and deforming a template three-dimensional (3D) surface mesh preconfigured for the internal anatomical structure's type into a deformed 3D surface mesh based on the adjusted set of contours to obtain the geometrical reconstruction of the internal anatomical structure. In particular, the internal anatomical structure is a heart. There is also provided a corresponding system for geometrical reconstruction of an internal anatomical structure.
