The number of markups needed differs from project to project. In case of the osteoclast detection algorithm, about 100 FOVs were manually marked up for osteoclasts. It is essential to draw these markups on a second “layer” (like a “transparency film” on top of the original image) of the target image so that no information from the original image is lost.
