How to Select the Correct Magnification and Patch Size for Digital Pathology Projects

In digital pathology, input data is often exceedingly too large for DL models to process directly, with Whole Slide Images (WSI) around 100k x 100k pixels. This post provides a quantitative and qualitative method, with code, to help optimize important digital pathology specific hyperparameters: patch size and magnification. Optimizing these variables can decrease training times, lowers hardware requirements, and reduces the amount of data required to effectively train a model.
