Abstract

Hematological malignancies are rare and complex diseases and as a consequence, multimodal data (ranging from clinical and genomic information to images) are required to improve diagnosis, prognosis and personalized treatments. However, collecting all these layers of information is challenging, in particular when collecting cytological and histological images from the bone marrow (BM) reproducing disease morphologic features. Synthetic data generation by Artificial Intelligence (AI) can circumvent these issues by generating images conditioned from textual inputs (i.e. reports from pathologists), which are widely available and contain many useful clinical information. This technology can enrich data with synthetic images, thus boosting translational research and improving the performances of precision medicine strategies based on multimodal information.
