SP89 Expanding the Pathologists’ Toolbox in the Era of Personalized Healthcare – Next-Generation Pathology Technology

Thursday, October 28 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Hear about new information regarding several technologies – including virtual slide imaging/image analysis, circulating tumor cells, and quantum dot multiplexing – with the potential to form the basis of future high-value medical diagnostics performed and interpreted by pathologists. The faculty will discuss the need for research-grade discovery technologies to be adapted rapidly into diagnostic products that are not only analytically accurate, but also fit into routine clinical practice. You will leave with the ability to:

Recognize the relevance of the Personalized Healthcare (PHC) model for pathologists.
Understand the basic principles underlying key technologies that may play an important role in the future of pathology.
