Microscopic images were captured from bone marrow aspirate slides of patients diagnosed with multiple myeloma as per the standard guidelines. Slides were stained using Jenner- Giemsa stain. Images were captured at 1000x magnication using Nikon Eclipse-200 microscope equipped with a digital camera. Images were captured in raw BMP format with a size of 2560x1920 pixels. In all, this dataset consists of 85 images. All these 85 images were stain normalized using our in-house methodology before being used for segmentation. These stain normalized images have been provided as the annotated dataset with plasma cells marked in all image slides contained in a presentation for the ready reference of readers.
This collection has also been uploaded to the Harvard Blood Cancer Dataverse website. Please refer to DOI 10.7910/DVN/XCX7ST for more information.
