Whole slide imaging (WSI) enables the digitization of microscope slides, producing a digital image for review in the pathology lab. Implementation of digital pathology using whole slide imaging for routine diagnosis will transform the pathology practice, however with so many factors to consider, implementing a Digital Pathology solution can be a challenge even to the most seasoned institutions.

The Digital Pathology Masterclass will demystify and uncover the important elements needed towards a successful digital pathology deployment. The speaker will share experiences on validating Digital Pathology; guidance on using Digital Pathology during COVID-19; and provide practical tips which institutions can apply immediately. The panel discussion features Digital Pathology subject matter experts from around the world, who aim to share their various learnings, so you have a framework to help you navigate your Digital Pathology journey and mitigate some common pitfalls along the way.

PRESENTATION TOPIC : Validation of Digital Pathology and Guidance Towards Working from Home During COVID
• Learn about validation of Digital Pathology
• Explore tips on utilizing Digital Pathology during COVID-19

PANEL DISCUSSION TITLE : Demystifying Digital Pathology Deployment – Tips, Challenges and How to Overcome Common Pitfalls
• Learn from early adopters on the value of adopting Digital Pathology
• Get practical tips and advice from those who have implemented Digital Pathology
• Explore important considerations/challenges and how to overcome them
• Discover that successful implementation is easily attainable with a comprehensive deployment strategy
• Leave the Digital Pathology Masterclass ready to transform your lab

Dr Darren Treanor, MD, PhD – (MODERATOR)
Consultant Pathologist and Honorary Clinical Associate Professor – Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and the University of Leeds

Dr. Darren Treanor MB BSc (Computing) MD PhD is a consultant pathologist at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, honorary clinical associate professor at the University of Leeds, United Kingdom, and guest professor in digital pathology at Linköping University, Sweden.
Dr. Treanor runs the Leeds virtual pathology project, working in digital pathology research and innovation since 2003. He led the UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funded project “A virtual reality microscope for pathology”.
He is director of the “Northern Pathology Imaging Co-operative”, commencing 2019, a £17m Industry-NHS collaboration to deploy digital pathology across all the hospitals in West Yorkshire, covering a population of 3 million patients, and use this infrastructure to develop and test artificial intelligence systems to diagnose cancer.
Other research activities include 3D tissue reconstruction, image analysis, color measurement/ correction and the use of digital pathology in education and training.


Dr Bethany Williams, MBBS PhD
Digital Pathology Research Fellow – Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and the University of Leeds

Dr Bethany Williams is a Digital Pathology Research Fellow at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and the University of Leeds, where she is a lead investigator on the Northern Pathology Imaging Co-Operative, investigating the clinical adoption of artificial intelligence in pathology. She obtained her medical degree at University College London before commencing histopathology training at Leeds. In 2015, she became the world’s first Leadership Fellow in Digital Pathology, and designed and project managed Leeds’ innovative digital pathology pilot deployment and validation. She is now reaching the end of a PhD focused on patient safety aspects of digital pathology technology, and has published extensively on diverse digital pathology topics including the case for adoption and the business case for digital pathology deployment. She is a thought leader in evidence based digital pathology training and validation, and her scientific papers on digital diagnostic accuracy form the basis of the Royal College of Pathologists’ guidelines for safe, effective digital deployment. Her body of research earned her the Pathological Society’s medal for research impact, and she is regularly invited to speak at international conferences as an authority on the digital pathology evidence base, practical deployment and patient safety.
