The essence of colour management is to ensure that the original target translates through a digital pathway so that the output images are exactly the same colour as the original.
When applied to medical imaging, and considering all the specific stains used in pathology, colour management becomes important. Particular coloured stains bind specific structures of cells in tissue to confer visualisation of diagnostic information. Without translating the colour through the digital pathway correctly, you lose the aspect of diagnostic information, which comes from specific colours.

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.”
