This conference has already taken place.
The past several years have seen significant technical advancement in the ability to use whole slide imaging (WSI) to digitize large numbers of slides automatically, rapidly and at high resolution. These advances have allowed pathologists to better archive, view, analyze and share their whole slide images. Some of the proven uses of WSI are using it for education (digital teaching sets, tumor boards), documentation and quality assurance (archiving consult and medicolegal cases), clinical uses (remote consultations, primary diagnosis), and image analysis. In our institution, we have validated and have been implementing WSI for multiple applications including using WSI for primary diagnosis. In the last decade, we have also witnessed several vendor/institutional digital pathology networks (DPN) developed around this technology for remote consultations. Some laboratories currently using WSI have made headway at integrating their digital slides with laboratory information system (LIS), and started streamlining their “digital workflow” with the intent of moving to a “slideless” laboratory. This workshop will address the selection of a WSI vendor, implementing this technology in pathology laboratory and provide an overview of using WSI for primary diagnosis, focusing on what all labs need to know about the technology, workflow impact, clinical quality and financial opportunity.
