Since first hearing and seeing this site in the BioImagene booth at USCAP have uploaded over 50 cases and the service provided for scanning and web hosting your cases has been top notch!
Included in the cases I have had scanned to date is a soft tissue tumor study set with comments submitted on a few of the cases (I still need to respond to…) about the diagnosis, histogenesis or prognosis of the lesions.
We also recently uploaded another set of 40 pancreas cases with 10 examples each of 3 different forms of pancreatitis and 10 cases of carcinoma for comparison. One of the goals of this project is to include gastroenterologists to share in the discussion as well. Another application I plan on using the site for is resident education as "unknown" cases.
Overall, a great service and site and another example of the Pathology 2.0 revolution – content by users, for users, sharing cases, knowledge, experience & collective experience.
To date, over 800 users have joined and 1200 cases have been uploaded to the site. I encourage you to take a look for yourself.
