The Royal College of Pathologists uses PathXL for their Pilot Project in the use of Digital Pathology
PathXL is working alongside The Royal College of Pathologists to coordinate a pilot project with the aim of exploring the benefits and usage requirements of Digital Pathology by College fellows.
Other objectives include investigating whether the College should create an archive of slides in support of e-learning.
PathXL, a global pioneer in the use of web-based solutions for digital pathology, is providing the image and content management software as well as secure cloud hosting for the pilot. With PathXL, slides can be accessed from any location, including within NHS firewalls. Slide management tasks can also be conducted from any location.
There are two digital scanners installed at the College – one fromNikon /Hamamatsu and the other from Laser 2000/3D Histech. The equipment is available for fellows to use and test, and is located in the Fellows room on the first floor of 2 Carlton House Terrace.
All fellows are welcome and encouraged to use the equipment to scan slides and to comment on the suitability of the equipment and the results generated. A short evaluation form has been designed to capture feedback from users and this important feedback will be used to write a report at the end of the pilot for consideration by Council.
The pilot will run until 6th May – to book a particular time slot please contact the front of house team on firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 020 7451 6707. All of the front of house staff have been trained to use the scanners and software and will be available to help out if required.
