    Interview with veterinary pathologist on AI-assisted screening of bone marrow cellularity changes

    Bone marrow cellularity is the volume ratio of hematopoiesis (the body’s manufacturing of blood cells) and fat, and decreases with age. Many compounds can alter the cellularity of bone marrow making it a vital tissue for analysis by pathologists in pharmacologic safety studies. Quantitative data is vital for statistical evaluation in risk and toxicity assessments.
