Ole Eichhorn
Chief Technology Officer, Aperio

In this 60-minute complimentary webinar, Ole Eichhorn discusses the industry-wide project to incorporate whole-slide imaging for pathology into the DICOM medical imaging standard (NEMA Working Group 26), as well as related issues such as storage, archival and retrieval, and multi-site sharing across wide-area networks.

Topics will include: 

  • Characteristics of whole slide images (WSI)
  • NEMA Working Group 26 and the proposed supplement to incorporate WSI into DICOM
  • Image access patterns needed for pathology
  • Integrating WSI with photomicrographs, 3D images, and other imagery from other modalities, such as Radiology
  • Optimizing performance of image access to WSI for viewing and analysis
  • GLP and image signatures on large files across multiple sites
