Digital pathology



A national digital pathology system across Denmark has helped to significantly improve efficiency and raise levels of patient safety. It has used advanced computer software systems and created a countrywide database to optimise the assessment of patients’ specimens, according to an article by Mark Nicholls for Healthcare In Europe.

Article excerpt:

“Digitisation of laboratory processes and the link to the pathology LIS, plus national pathology database, opens up the opportunity for image automation, including digital image analysis and transfer of whole slide images, in cases where a second opinion is needed without compromising either patient safety or the international data acts.”
