I'm working on my last year project where I'm given digitized WSI (Whole Slide Images), though they're fairly small around 1390x1040 size (which is unusual). These images are of cases of Glioblastoma Multiforme (brain cancer) which is stained with Ki-64 index, which results in what I assume malignant parts being marked as brown. Here's a small example of what I'm looking at.
My objective in simple terms is to count the blue and brown cells (estimation of proliferation indices) which based on what I've researched is a segmentation problem. I've also came to conclusion that AlexNet is a successful architecture for this purpose. However, the trouble I'm having is that this data is unlabeled and as a Comp Sci student, I don't think I have enough expertise to annotate the ground truth values. My question the boils down to this, are there any alternative methods should I explore, or should I drop this dataset altogether?
