Digital Pathology

Supporting the growth and evolution of a digital pathology environment in support of its varied missions.

Digital Pathology (DP) may be defined as "an image-based information environment, enabled by computer technology, that allows for the management of information generated from a digital slide. DP is enabled in part by virtual microscopy, which is the practice of converting glass slides into digital slides [scanning] that can be viewed, annotated, and analyzed on a computer monitor."

The Slide Scanning Process (Digital Pathology Core)

Performs scanning on a per-request basis; maintains a secure database of over 325,000 scanned images and associated metadata; instructs and provides technical support to faculty and staff for DP use; and is essentially involved in the growth of DP applications, including support of live-view microscopy for frozen sections and the testing and validation of new whole-slide imaging solutions.
