Hey to everyone,
I was exploring the GDC portal in order to download certain whole slide images for training a deep network for BRCA classification. However, I came across multiple images corresponding to an individual patient. For instance: Case id: TCGA-AN-A046 comprise 3 slide images -- TCGA-AN-A046-01Z-00-DX1, TCGA-AN-A046-01A-02-BS2, TCGA-AN-A046-01A-01-BS1.
My question is -
- What is the significance of these different images?
- Which image is utilised for histopathological classification?
- How are these images different from one another?
