This dataset (Kather_texture_2016_image_tiles_5000) represents a collection of textures in histological images of human colorectal cancer. Dataset contains 5000 histological images of 150 * 150 px each (74 * 74 µm). Each image belongs to exactly one of eight tissue categories. All images are RGB, 0.495 µm per pixel, digitized with an Aperio ScanScope (Aperio/Leica biosystems), magnification 20x.

Histological samples are fully anonymized images of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded human colorectal adenocarcinomas (primary tumors) from the pathology archive at the Institute of Pathology, University Medical Center Mannheim, Heidelberg University, Mannheim, Germany.
