Now expertise can spread faster than cancer.

Cancer is now the costliest disease in the world and the number of pathologists is not keeping pace with the growing rate of new cancer cases. Patients may be at greater risk for delays to treatment as healthcare practitioners rely on pathologists to direct 100% of all cancer diagnoses.

An industry perspective: An update on the adoption of whole slide imaging

The World Health Organization cites that there were 14 million new cases of cancer in 2012, making it among the leading causes of death globally. The number of new cancer cases is expected to grow by 70% over the next two decades, further stressing the global healthcare systems. Among those who will first feel the impact of this crisis will be providers who are making the initial determination of cancer, namely, anatomic pathologists.

Validation Of Digital Pathology Imaging For Primary Histopathological Diagnosis

Digital pathology (DP) is the conversion of the light microscope image of a slide into a set of digitized files that allow the reproduction of the original slide on a computer workstation; it is also called virtual microscopy or whole slide imaging.

Scanning of frozen section tissue specimens has been validated for the Omnyx® Precision Solution with the VL4 scanner only. The Omnyx Precision Solution with VL120 scanner has not been validated for frozen section scanning.

Can Digital Pathology Result In Cost Savings? A Financial Projection For Digital Pathology Implementation At A Large Integrated Health Care Organization.

Digital pathology includes the integration of whole slide images (WSIs) into pathologists’ clinical workflow by offering them a digital manner to manage, interpret, analyze, and archive pathology information. One of the main purposes of digital pathology is to enable pathology workflow, while maintaining or improving interpretive accuracy.

Relationship between magnification and resolution in digital pathology systems.

Relationship between magnification and resolution in digital pathology systems.

Digital pathology holds great promise for the future of anatomic pathology and many pathology laboratories today are starting to adopt this technology for a variety of applications, including telepathology (teleconsultation), quantitative image analysis and digitization of lab workflow. Slide scanning systems are one component of the technology that will enable the digitization of the analog glass workflow to a digital workflow.
