Watch the Webinar- October 5, 2021: Digital Pathology Part 1

Sponsored by PNPL


Digital pathology is an emerging standard of care in the medical domain with tremendous potential to change the way pathologists, researchers, and other personnel interact with medical data.  While digital pathology has significant promises, there are still obstacles to adopting and implementing these technologies. This presentation covers the nuts and bolts for topics related to digital pathology systems for those who are not familiar with or want a solid foundation in understanding digital pathology systems.

In this session, we will explore:

  • Brief overview of the basics in digital imaging
  • History of digital pathology
  • Digital pathology ecosystem
  • Whole slide imaging use cases (i.e., clinical, research, and education)
  • Challenges and limitations of digital pathology
