Next Generation Digital Pathology

Oct 14 2020

The world of Pathology is rapidly changing. New developments in digital camera technology, automated image acquisition and simplified data transfer have a deep impact on the daily workflow within a hospital.

The time-consuming manual examination of suspicious patient samples became obsolete. The risky transport of glass slide for a second opinion is no longer necessary. Alternatively, digital images of large tissue sections are created by whole slide scanners; the storage of huge data volume through cloud computing gives an easy access to a worldwide database. There is minimal to no difference between a diagnosis from digital images as compared to those rendered via conventional microscopy.

Stakeholders from manufacturing industry and medical research, from government and politics are working on an international standardisation, the complete working process is in focus.

Small labs and universities may start with a manual microscope and a stitching software for panorama images. A 1-slide scanner for a one-button operation could be the next step into an automated image acquisition. For hospitals and large labs whole slide imaging (WSI) scanners have been developed, working overnight for fast results. Motic Easystitch Pro and MoticEasyScan solutions are able to cover all degrees of automation.

Cloud computing is the easiest way to handle the large data volume created by a worldwide cooperation. The MoticFlow Telepathology Platform connects pathologists to hospitals around the world, supporting most slide formats and provides a turnkey solution for any kind of collaborative work. An immediate diagnostic support from a remotely located expert drastically improves the quality of care.

The future of pathology is already defined: Digital pathology. The implementation of image analysis creates a diagnostic tool, giving a diagnostic proposal for therapy and for prognosis. Here the expression ‘AI’ (Artificial Intelligence) is wholeheartedly justifiable.
