Guidelines for Validating Whole Slide Imaging for Diagnostic Purposes
Posted 25th May 2021 by Nicholas Noakes
Andrew Evans, speaking at the Digital Pathology & AI Congress USA, described new guidelines he helped to draft for validating whole-slide-imaging for diagnostic purposes. First published in 2013 the guidelines were designed to address the fundamental question, “what needs to be done to validate a whole slide imaging for diagnostic use?”. The review producing the new guidelines was published in May 2021.
