Digitizing for the sake of digitizing makes little sense in pathology. But if the goals are clearly defined, even beginners can quickly benefit from the added value of digital pathology. At the Smart In Media Interactive Expert Meeting on Thursday, May 6, Dr. Alberto Pérez Bouza demonstrates live the best way to get started and how pathologists can even diagnose from home with the help of digital pathology.
Digitizing brings many advantages for the pathological workflow and the quality of diagnosis – and can be effectively combined with classical microscopy. If you want to benefit from all the advantages and opportunities, you must adapt the classic workflow.
Dr. Perez Bouza provides insights into the daily processes of his digitalized laboratory in Troisdorf. He shows what works well – and what doesn’t. Last but not least, participants can perform live digital microscopy with him.
- Structure, hardware, software, and workflows for digital pathology
- Tricks for optimizing (not only) digital workflows
- Pitfalls and stumbling blocks on the way to digital pathology
- Optimal conditions for the use of digital pathology
- What to avoid or improve in the laboratory
PD Dr. Alberto Pérez Bouza has been engaged in digital pathology for many years and has co-developed leading software solutions to optimize pathological workflows. He is head of the Institute of Pathology and Cytology Troisdorf.
