Digital Pathology

Effective communication & management of test results

The World Alliance for Patient Safety has identified poor test result management as a high priority patient safety area. Evidence-based reviews have shown that pathology and imaging test results fail to be followed up in 20% to 62% of inpatients, and in up to 75% of patients treated in an emergency department [1]. Poor test result follow-up can have major consequences for quality of care, including missed diagnoses and sub-optimal patient outcomes.

Morphometric analysis of the vascular network in renal cancer

We recently formed a working group at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles that integrates the research areas of molecular pathology, computational biology and digital image analysis under one umbrella and in one location.

Knowledge Management and the future of Clinical Pathology

Clinical pathology has reached a critical cross-roads. Where the pathology service operates within a competitive funding arrangement, such as in Australia, consolidation proceeds apace. In large part this consolidation is driven by both revenue and cost pressures. This results in a highly efficient factory-and-logistics model for laboratory operations – but with inevitable consequences for professionals and consumers alike.

Computational Imaging and Precision Medicine

The digitization of tissue glass slides is clearly opening up exciting opportunities as well as challenges to the world of computational imaging scientists. It is clear that while computational imaging can clearly play a role in better quantitative characterization of disease and precision medicine, there still remain a number of substantial technical and computational challenges that need to be overcome before computer assisted image analysis of digital pathology can become part of the routine clinical diagnostic workflow.
