Figure 2: Steps of the cleaning process of digital liver specimen image. (a) Glimpse of the whole slide in order to select the scanning area of a picrosirius red stained section of the whole liver specimen (green rectangle). (b) First step on the scanned liver specimen: The light-grey background and small artefacts (arrows) have to be removed by the automated process. (c) Second step: The liver specimen still displays some inappropriate areas for fibrosis measure (circles). These are, on higher magnification, c1: Liver capsule with adipose tissue; c2 and c3: Torn fragments at the edge of the specimen. (d) Final image after manual cleaning
