UNDERSTANDING & UTILIZING DIGITAL PATHOLOGY AS A TOOL FOR ADVANCING PATHOLOGY PRACTICE & ENABLING ENHANCED PATIENT CARE

Global Engage is pleased to announce the 2nd Digital Pathology Congress USA, which will be held on June July 14-15th, 2016 in Philadelphia, USA. The conference is a sister event to their successful European Digital Pathology Congress which attracted over 260 attendees with 35+ exhibitor companies, and part of the Digital Pathology Series which also includes conferences in Kuala Lumpur and Dubai. http://www.globalengage.co.uk/events/

I am delighted to be making the opening Keynote presentation at the 2nd Digital Pathology Congress in Philadelphia this July.

Digital pathology greatly facilitates the sharing of cases so that the right case is seen by the right pathologist with expertise in that area, particularly helping under-served areas. This translates to better patient outcomes through better accuracy and more reproducible diagnoses, often with with the aid of computer–assisted tools. While it is true that in the USA FDA regulations have prevented the use of digital pathology systems for primary diagnosis it is also true that in Europe, true interoperability and standardization of digital pathology technology have been difficult to achieve. The industry is currently at a crossroads where vendors, who are producing different instruments, software and file formats, will need to standardize their offerings. By promoting standardization and gaining improved interoperability we will all benefit from more widespread adoption of digital pathology.

That said, the reason Pathologists are continuing to invest in digital pathology is to reap the value of a digital platform, such as the benefits of image analysis. Computer aided diagnostic tools will enable pathology to transition from a manual and qualitative field to an automated and quantitative science. However, right now there are very few image analysis tools that can be used in routine clinical practice. In my presentation I will cover the readiness of image analysis and highlight the key steps that need to be taken to meet the demand for current clinical practice.

The current state of and future of Digital Pathology:



The continuing growth and advances in digital pathology solutions is helping to transform the industry.  With wide ranging applications and benefits including reduction in lab costs, increased workflow efficiency, greater interconnectivity, effective training / education methods, improved decision making is enabling enhanced patient care.  The result is that Digital Pathology is rapidly gaining momentum worldwide.  Overcoming the barriers to effectively implementing the technology, as it awaits FDA approval, is vital to ensuring that lab efficiency and patient care is retained.

Attracting over 175 industry & academic experts working in all areas of Pathology this two day interactive meeting will provide the opportunity to take home cutting edge strategies, analysis techniques, case study and methods to allow you to fully utilise the technology, informatics and image analysis tools of Digital Pathology. This will be achieved through a vibrant exhibition room full of technology providers showcasing their technologies and other solutions, networking breaks allowing interaction with your peers, poster presentation sessions, and expert led case study presentations and incisive Q&A panel discussions during three separate tracks which will examine the topics below.

1 -
Digital Pathology - Strategy and Technology
2 -
Digital Pathology Applications and Research Case Studies
3 -
Pathology Informatics
4 -
Digital Image Analysis
