| February 26, 2012

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Digital Health NOW Spotlight Report: The Evolving Field of Digital Pathology" report to their offering.

"Digital pathology is a disruptive technology; however, the consensus is that digital pathology is clearly our future. This iteration of Branham's Digital Health NOW Spotlight report takes a look at the emerging Digital Pathology market segment in health care. The report provides an overview and a general understanding of Digital Pathology rather than a detailed discussion of underlying technologies and vendors.

Digital pathology is rapidly gaining momentum as a proven and essential technology that is helping to reduce laboratory expenses, improve operational efficiency, enhance productivity and improve treatment decisions and patient care. It is used worldwide in drug development, reference lab, hospital, and academic medical centre settings. Applications include education, research, image analysis, archival and retrieval, LIS/LIMS integration, secondary consultations and virtual slide sharing. However, widespread adoption of digital pathology has been hindered not only by cost and technical factors but also largely by the mind set of technophobic pathologists.
