Digital pathology in the service of diagnostics. This new issue includes concrete evidence of the everyday use of digital pathology at hospital level.
The editorial from Jean-François POMEROL
I am happy to present this newsletter for your attention and, at the same time, to wish you an excellent 2016, full of projects, success and happiness.
In the Paris-Sud AP-HP Hospital Consortium, these applications are extensive, as they incorporate macroscopy, remote frozen section examinations, the presentation of slides at staff consultations and multi-disciplinary consultation meetings, and research work undertaken in conjunction with teams at the INSERM (national institute of health and medical research). The use of digital imaging in all these applications not only enhances the efficiency of work undertaken, but reinforces links and communications between pathologists, surgeons and researchers.. To a large degree, these new practices are now commonplace.
While increasing numbers of studies are demonstrating that the use of digital pathology for primary diagnosis is a reliable option, and that the transition from microscope to screen offers fresh potential for the profession, I believe, more than ever, that pathology departments will expand their systematic use of our solutions in response to cancer diagnosis issues. Rapid, accurate and documented diagnosis serves the interests of optimum patient care.
Indeed, we hope that 2016 will see the realization of projects for the adoption of digital pathology, and will be a successful year, in terms of the deployment of these solutions for our clients. In pursuit of these projects and this success, we are proud to work with you. As for happiness … it doesn’t appear to come to those who sit waiting for it. In the light of forthcoming projects and our ambitions, we should be able to achieve that too. !
The newletter #5 presents the testimony of the Paris-Sud AP-HP Hospital Consortium and their feedback in digital pathology. They explain how the integration of digital imaging modified their daily clinical and research practices as well as their progress in telepathology.
