|Digital Pathology: Roadmap to the Future of Medical Diagnosis|
|Digital Pathology solutions and Artificial Intelligence tools are destined to transform efficiency and workflow of Pathology services|
Digital Pathology encompasses the use of optmized pathology workstations, whole slide imaging, image analysis, image management, laboratory information management system, use of machine learning, data handling and storage. Pathology is one of the most important fields in medicine, as the service provides investigation and validation platform in lieu of a medical condition of a patient. Traditional methods of pathology involves slide preparation, traditional microscopy, result interpretation from microscopy by pathologist onto an information management system followed by physical storage of slides for a prescribed timeline. According to numerous research and surveys conducted across the world, the request for pathology services are increasing by a healthy percentage year-on-year which can be attributed to the increase in cancer prevalence across the globe, ageing population amongst a number of other factors. Factoring in to the above the number of experienced pathologists available at the moment and ones about to retire, the scenario for pathology services may start to look grim.
