Validating Whole Slide Imaging Systems for Diagnostic Use in Pathology
FREE PHC Webinar
Wednesday, October 12, 2011
11:00 AM – Noon (CDT)
Speaker: Liron Pantanowitz MD, FCAP
Validation of WSI is crucial to ensure that diagnostic performance based on digitized slides is at least equivalent to that of glass slides and light microscopy. The CAP Pathology and Laboratory Quality Center convened a non-vendor panel from North America with expertise in digital pathology in order to develop recommendations for validating WSI systems.
This webinar will cover the background rationale and supporting data used to develop 13 recommendations formulated by the panel. The final result of this effort is intended to improve the clinical use of WSI technology in pathology by providing assurance that these digital tools are being properly used for their intended clinical use, thereby reducing the potential risk of misdiagnosis attributed to this technology.
