    (ECO-)SYSTEMIC PROBLEMS IN DIGITAL PATHOLOGY WORKFLOWS

    The digital transformation of pathology is necessary, but even if the core technologies are already available, applying them in practice in hospital workflows takes time and effort. To speed things up, the benefits of novel methods over the existing must be clearly demonstrated (read this and this for more information).

    PERSONAL SLIDE SCANNER VS. CONVENTIONAL MULTI-SLIDE SCANNER

    In digital pathology, a small portable scanner can handle some workflows better than conventional big scanners. As the awareness of an alternative to multi-slide scanners grows, comparing similarities and differences is a convenient way of wrapping one’s head around a new idea. Scanning speed often comes up as a metric to contest the platforms. But does it really matter?

    WHAT IS DRIVING DIGITAL PATHOLOGY?

    Pathology is in transition. There simply aren’t enough pathologists to go around. With an aging population the number of pathology cases and the number of samples to process keeps growing. Since new graduate pathologists can’t be trained and educated fast enough to satisfy demand, the only option* is to make the existing and incoming pathologists process more samples. Since just working more hours is not feasible for medical professionals in charge of diagnosing to save lives, we must find a way to make the pathologists work more efficiently.
