Digital Pathology

Digital Pathology

Pathology quite literally means the “the study of disease.” Modern pathologists have a number of important functions, one of which is to analyze sliced sections of abnormal tissues. These tissues are stained, mounted on a glass slide and viewed under a microscope for diagnosing the disease. Digital pathology deals with aspects of acquisition, management and interpretation of pathology information generated from a digitized glass slide.
 
Digital pathology is a rapidly growing field which has generated a lot of interest among the stakeholders, including hospitals, laboratories, pathologists, surgeons, research institutes, residents, medical device manufacturers, healthcare companies, and pharmaceutical companies, among others. Although it is a new field, technological breakthroughs are occurring at a rapid pace. Digital pathology attacks the central challenge facing pathology, in that the physical coupling of pathologists and the slides, which has stalled the increase in pathologist productivity, would no longer be a factor.
 
Today, there are high-end slide scanners which can scan a standard slide at 200x magnification in less than two minutes, generating whole slide image data in the multiples of gigabytes. However, a great deal of technical bottlenecks remain, and companies involved in creating digital pathology solutions are challenged by the lack of adoption of digital pathology systems. This whitepaper tries to provide a comprehensive review of the digital pathology landscape, both from a clinical and a technological perspective.
