Year 3: High-throughput truthing of microscope slides to validate artificial intelligence algorithms analyzing digital scans of pathology slides: data collection to create the medical device development tool (MDDT)
In Year 3 of the High Throughput Truthing project, the team will collect data at various collaborating sites and conferences.

- We are crowdsourcing pathologists to collect data (images + pathologist annotations) that can be qualified by the FDA/CDRH medical device development tool program (MDDT). If successful, the MDDT qualified data along with a statistical software package for data analysis would be available to any algorithm developer to be used to validate their algorithm performance in a submission to the FDA/CDRH.
Researchers from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, alongside academic collaborators, are collecting pathologist annotations as data for AI/ML algorithm validation for tumor infiltrating lymphocyte (TIL) detection and quantitation. We are asking board-certified anatomic pathologists and anatomic pathology residents to score 80 ROIs as part of a research study. We anticipate that this task will take participants a total of 30 minutes. The data are intended to inform the agency’s approach to novel algorithm validation, ensuring high quality commercial products with a faster FDA-pipeline to approval.
