Pathology imaging system uses the latest technology of scanners and software for digitizing the slides for pathological examinations. It has replaced the traditional pathology workflow of slides and microscope. By digitizing slides, pathologists are able to examine high resolution digital images of the pathology workflow with the help of precision tools. Using these system, images can be stored in a computer, send to another person and thus improve the pathology workflow. This technology helps in more precise diagnosis by facilitating accurate and timely diagnosis, patient-centric information, eliminate time consuming analog tasks and enhancing the overall lab performance. These systems helped the patients to receive better care and transforming healthcare organizations. With the growing cases of chronic diseases like cancer, it has become important to visualize each and every molecular aspect. Pathology imaging systems have finds its use in all the phases of drug discovery, education, clinical and research and thus has made the anatomic pathology workflow more efficient and effective.
These pathology imaging systems are instinctive solution that benefits various pathologists, healthcare professionals and entire healthcare enterprise. Shift from glass to the digital system opens the way for next generation tools such as advanced image analysis & algorithms. It also helps in new data integration like genomic and molecular testing thus leading to precise and personalized treatment plans.
