Reducing Experiment Duration for Stanford Medicine

blog image

The Division of Nephrology reduced experiment duration by 80% while processing 3x more images.

Problem

Stanford was using three different pieces of software to identify, annotate, and count podocytes and glomeruli in microscopy images.

Solution

Stanford started using Encord's annotation tools & SDK to automate segmentations, count, and calculate sizes of segments.

Results

With Encord, Stanford researchers reduced experiment duration from an average of 21 to 4 days while processing 3x the number of images.

  • 80% reduction in experiment duration
  • 3X number of images labeled
  • Using 1 platform and not 3
