About this product
- DescriptionDigital pathology has experienced exponential growth, in terms of its techlogy and applications, since its inception just over a decade ago. Though it has yet to be approved for primary diagstics, its values as a teaching tool, facilitator of second opinions and quality assurance reviews and research are becoming, if t already, undeniable. It also offers the hope of providing pathology consultant and educational services to under-served areas, including regions of the world that could t possibly sustain this level of services otherwise. And this is just the beginning, as its adoption by the also rapidly-emerging fields of medical systems biology and 3D tissue imaging indicate. This work describes how digital pathology t only has the potential to dramatically impact medical education and the delivery of health care, but also to exert an immensely positive influence worldwide, including in countries and regions that rmally fail to benefit from such techlogical advances.
