Usher in Digital Pathology

Digital technology has comprehensively transformed the diagnostic methods of medical pathology, upgrading the old model that has, for centuries , used microscopes as the primary tool of observation.

Now, digital pathology — already widespread in pathology diagnosis, pathology Artificial Intelligence (AI), multi-modal diagnosis, and remote pathology consultation and teaching — is playing an important role in resolving a variety of issues that have arisen in the age of data, from obstacles to information sharing, to the uneven distribution of resources and expertise.

That's because digital pathology is equipped to handle large data volumes, with the annual pathological data increment of grade-A tertiary hospitals standing at1–3 PB each year: an annual growth rate of 20–30%.

Digital tools also foster full-service integration, integrating service and full-process systems, implementing CNAS management digitalization. Long-term data storage needs are also addressed, given that pathological data needs to be retained for over 15 or even 30 years. Finally, digital pathology overcomes data sharing issues, where diverse sources can lead to scattered data.

Indeed, digital pathology is now enabling real-time information transfer, upgrading diagnostic capabilities, and improving medical care overall. It addresses the slow image reading and freezing issues of conventional methods, which struggle to handle the size of slide files, ranging from 1–3 GB.
