Digital Pathology Market: Advancements at Peak

Mon, 18 May 2020 6:09

Digital pathology integrates the collection, management, sharing, and analysis of pathology knowledge, including slides and data, in a digital world. Glass slides are created to have a high-resolution digital image that can be displayed on a computer screen or mobile device when glass slides are collected with a scanning tool. The rapid development of whole slide imaging (WSI) technology, coupled with innovations in software applications, LIS / LIMS interfacing, and high-speed networking, has enabled the complete integration of digital pathology into pathology workflows.

Digital pathology helps pathologists to easily and remotely communicate, analyze, and collaborate, with clarity and accuracy, thus increasing performance and productivity. Eventually, the future of digital pathology will include improved translational testing, computer-aided diagnosis (CAD), and personalized medicine.

Over the years, digital pathology has created a new forum for clinical pathology, enabling convenient and accurate data sharing for diagnostic and multi-research pathology studies between scientists and laboratory technicians. Digital pathology is a promising sector within In-Vitro Diagnostics (IVD). Its case use extends to hospitals, research labs, pathologists, teaching and research institutes and pharmaceutical companies.

Digital-Pathology-Market-DriversImpact of COVID-19

Digital pathology is more important than ever amid the coronavirus pandemic. The most successful way to reduce the possibility of transmission is by encouraging pathologists to practice social distancing by encouraging remote research. Pathologists can work from home and monitor their microscopes remotely, display slides in real-time and from uploaded collections, exchange information with colleagues, and continue to provide remote diagnostics.

In April 2020, the FDA issued an immediate in effect guidance, ‘Enforcement Policy for Remote Digital Pathology Devices’ during ‘COVID-19 Public Health Emergency’, to extend the availability of devices for remote reviewing and reporting of scanned digital images of pathology slides.
