Ten things you need to know about going 100% digital for primary histopathology diagnosis

Digital pathology is based on creating a digital replica of the glass slide, called whole slide image (WSI). This image is then viewed in a computer screen, which eliminates the need for using a microscope. Can you imagine working in a glassless environment, with better ergonomics and being able to immediately find the slide you need?

Game Winning Hits: Singles or Home Runs?

To use a baseball analogy – there have been more games won with singles than with home runs. Home runs, when they happen, are spectacular, but they are few and far between. The journeyman single, while not the stuff of legend, gets the job done, and happens frequently. When it comes to the practical application of artificial intelligence in digital pathology, the analogy holds. The home run is machine diagnosis – replacement of the pathologist – the holy grail. The single represents baby steps which improve pathology practice, right up until the technology reaches its inevitable maturity.

Image Based Risk Assessment in Cancer

Pathologists identify and interpret the changes that characterise diseases in cells and tissues, both for the studying/understanding disease processes in general and obtaining clinically relevant information for individual patients. Historically, by examining biopsy specimens, pathologists identified whether a lesion was neoplastic, inflammatory, or some other broad category. As medicine evolved, the task evolved into identifying more specific classifications. For example, if it was not sufficient to make the diagnosis of cancer; it was necessary to identify the specific subtype and grade of cancer in order to inform treatment decisions that were becoming increasingly sophisticated.
