The Nuts And Bolts of Digital Pathology in Practice

Session Chairs: Chandra Saravanan, DVM MS PhD DACVP | Candice P. Chu DVM PhD DACVP

In the past two decades, whole slide imaging (WSI) has shown promises in next generation pathology practice, including applications in education, research, and clinical practice. This session will focus on practical issues surrounding deployment of digital pathology, including integral hardware components of contemporary WSI devices, fundamentals of laboratory information system, and validation of digital pathology workflow. In addition, user experiences from three different groups (academics, diagnostics, and pharma/biotech) will be presented. This session is aimed at audience with entry level in digital pathology and may help them to set up and/or enhance digital pathology workflow in their organization.
