Now more than ever intelligent human beings are needed to fulfil high value and high complexity tasks and histopathology is no exception. In fact, it is one of the sectors in the most desperate need.

Five or six years ago, I was looking for a strategic direction for the KIMIA Lab. We started with the problems. We asked, ‘What problems do we have in medical imaging?’

It was fascinating to speak with Hamid Tizhoosh, Professor at the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Waterloo in Canada, Director of KIMIA Lab and keynote speaker at the 6th Digital Pathology & AI Congress: USA, about using AI to transform what is possible in medical imaging.

Almost five years ago, the plan to implement a wide-ranging digital pathology approach across the Netherlands began to take shape. As more labs across the country acquire digital pathology capability, with steps to create a strong and accessible image repository and a national image exchange platform, one of the project leaders, Professor Katrien Grünberg, offered an update and spoke of some challenges that still lie ahead.

Bringing molecular and digital pathology closer together through a more integrative approach can lead to clear advantages for diagnostic and research workflows.

Computational pathology has increased applications for diagnosis, prediction of prognosis and therapy response, facilitating the movement of healthcare towards personalised medicine.
Coupled with deep learning, such tools are ever more efficient and robust within research and clinical settings.

When compared to traditional methods, digital pathology may seem totally superfluous, or interesting but not all that essential. And since the costs for the elegance of digital pathology solutions are not trivial in comparison to what the peddlers traditionally have offered, it is not surprising to see the adoption curve lagging. Where then is the ‘burning platform’ that can truly drive greater adoption of digital pathology?

Tumor Budding has been shown in numerous studies to be an independent prognostic factor in colorectal cancer (CRC) for the risk of distant metastasis and, in stage II CRC, for overall survival. Fraunhofer IIS and the Institute for Pathology, University Hospital Erlangen are developing an AI system to automatically detect tumor budding in CRC patients.
