Ocus Scanners Highlighted in USCAP 2024 Research Posters


At the USCAP annual meeting in Baltimore, Ocus scanners featured in two research posters, demonstrating their significant role in advancing medical imaging and digital pathology.

This year, at the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) annual meeting held in Baltimore in mid-March, Grundium continued its tradition of excellence as an exhibitor and marked its presence through notable mentions in research studies. In a significant acknowledgment of the capabilities of the Ocus scanners, two distinct posters featuring our technology were presented, each illuminating the innovative application of Ocus technology in medical imaging.

Evaluation of Whole Slide Imaging for Frozen Intraoperative Consultations at a Large Academic Institution

This poster, authored by Patrick Morse MD, Kaleigh Roberts MD PhD, Jon Ritter MD, Joseph Gaut MD PhD, and Mena Mansour MD, from Washington University in St. Louis and Barnes Jewish Hospital, Saint Louis, MO, focuses on the capabilities of Ocus scanners in supporting frozen intraoperative consultations. Specifically, the study conducts a retrospective review of traditional and WSI-based frozen consultations, analyzing turnaround time. The study advocates for incorporation of whole slide imaging into frozen consultation workflows, highlighting its potential to significantly improve diagnostic consultations across widespread healthcare infrastructures.

Virtual Pathology: A Remote Cytology Experience

Authored by Hannah R. Krigman MD, Cory T. Bernadt MD PhD, Ryan J. Hardy, Jon H. Ritter MD, H. Michael Isaacs, and R. Cody Weimholt DO, from Washington University Department of Pathology, this poster explores the adaptability of Ocus scanners in enabling remote cytological diagnostics across geographically dispersed hospital sites. By integrating digital microscopy for real-time evaluations, the team demonstrates how centralized subspecialized practices can overcome challenges of staffing and budget constraints, delivering expert consultations remotely.
