Digital and computational pathology is opening up a new dimension for pathology services. Philips Digital Pathology invites those attending the European Congress of Pathology (ECP; 2–6 September) in Amsterdam to visit Booth 44/45 for hands-on experience as well as tips from Dr Alexi Baidoshvilli (LabPON, The Netherlands). LabPON was one of the first laboratories to move to a fully digital histopathology workflow, and Dr Baidoshvili (pictured) believes that digital pathology will open up the potential for building “a global network of experts communicating remotely”.
This year, the second computational pathology symposium also takes place at ECP (Sunday, 3 September), with Esther Abels (Director Regulatory, Clinical and Medical Affairs at Philips Digital Pathology Solutions) will speak on ‘Computational pathology and interoperability to advance digital pathology’.
Digital pathology enables pathologists to review and share large sets of clinical data using image analytics with the aim of helping to improve the quality of diagnosis and offering the potential to enable new therapies and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
Philips’ lntelliSite Pathology Solution is an automated digital pathology image creation, management and viewing system comprising an ultrafast pathology slide scanner, an image management system and dedicated software tools.
