This study proposes a unique approach to classify CerbB2 tumor cell scores in breast cancer based on deep learning models. Another contribution of the study is the creation of a dataset from original breast cancer tissues. On the purpose of training, validating and testing with deep learning models cell fragments were generated from sample tissue images. CerbB2 tumor scores were generated for the cell fragments were classified with high performance by the aid of convolutional neural networks (CNN).
