We photographed Giemsa-stained thick blood smear slides from 150 P. falciparum infected patients at Chittagong Medical College Hospital, Bangladesh, using a smartphone camera for the different microscopic field of views. Images are captured with 100x magnification in RGB color space with a 3024×4032 pixel resolution. An expert slide reader manually annotated each image at the Mahidol-Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit (MORU), Bangkok, Thailand. We de-identified all images andtheir annotations, and archived them at the National Library of Medicine (IRB#12972).
