Falling off the cliff: are we short of pathologists?

I can recall clearly the pathologists coming to lecture our medical school class our second year in 1993.

Most of them felt compelled to tell us, “Pathology is a lot of fun, you can make a good living, but don’t go into it, there aren’t any jobs.”

What does the future hold for AI in Digital Pathology?

This is the second of a two-part blog post. In his first post, Liron wrote on embedding AI in Digital Pathology workflows.

Digital Pathology AI apps are certainly feasible, but exactly when they will be ready for clinical use is less clear.

There are potentially hundreds or thousands of algorithms that will need to be developed. Currently, there are only a handful of algorithms that are approved by regulatory bodies for clinical practice, so we’ve got a long way to go.

How do we embed AI into Digital Pathology workflows?

This is an exciting time in pathology: now that digital pathology is mature, we have noticed an uptake in a lot of AI start-up companies. Most of the algorithms have been developed on a research basis or in a test environment, and only recently applied. What follows is a summary of the work we are doing at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center testing these AI apps, and some of the questions arising therefrom.
