By and large, when we talk of digital pathology, this is that technology wherein we see the acquisition, management, sharing and analysis of pathology information, plus the slides and data, in a digital format or environment.
In order to create the digital slides, the glass slides are captured using a scanning device so as to provide such high resolution digital images that you will be able to view on a computer screen or some other mobile device. In fact, with the use of the high-throughput and automated digital scanners, you can literally capture an entire glass slide while under such a bright field like under fluorescent conditions and they will get you such high power magnifications just comparable to that of a microscope. These digital slides can be shared over networks and these will be using some equally specialized digital pathology software applications.
Moreover, note the fact that you will as well be using the Artificial image analysis tools which will be of help with the need to interpret and quantify the given biomarker expressions there are within the tissue sections. Actually, in so far as digital pathology and microscopy goes, we see in this a trend that has by far and large been around for years, and is one that seeks to transform pathology in general from the analog processes and applications to the digital sphere and age. As a matter of fact, digital pathology allows pathologists to engage, evaluate and collaborate quite rapidly and remotely, transparently and with a lot of consistency which as such makes it such a great alternative that will improve on efficiency and productivity in the practice. Looking at the ever evolving technology in so far as digital systems and their applications go in this field, we see such a bright future for the digital pathology microscopy and going forward, it will come to entail such applications as enhanced translational research, computer aided diagnosis and personal medicine. Read on and see some of the benefits of the application of digital pathology microscopy.
By and large, today’s pathology demands for a change in approach. Thus we see the fact that in the event that pathologists just fail to adopt digital pathology as should be, the net effect would be in the fact that they miss out on a number of the benefits that this has to offer which wouldn’t be achievable using glass slides. By and large, there are so many ways that digital pathology gets to improve on quality and some of these are such as have been highlighted under.
Talking of these, one of the outstanding ones is looking at the fact that they get to improve analysis for with digital pathology techniques, there will be reduced errors in analysis and as well it does improve views.
