A White Blood Cell Classifier for AML Diagnosis

Leukemia is a group of blood cancers that usually begin in the body's blood-forming tissues such as bone marrow and the lymphatic system. Leukemia diagnosis can be cumbersome and invasive. We have built a tool to aid in Acute Myeloid Leukemia diagnosis because it is relatively less researched and early detection can save a lot of people’s lives. Specifically, our models identify white blood cells in single-cell images with high accuracy. This aids in diagnosis as certain cell subtypes are indicative of disease.
