At Pathology Visions 2012, the
annual conference of the Digital Pathology Association (DPA), there will be
over 40 presenters covering a broad
range of topics relevant to digital pathology. The DPA, a non-profit organization that promotes
education and awareness of digital pathology applications, will be hosting
Pathology Visions at the Hilton in Baltimore, Maryland October 28-31, 2012.
Digital pathology is
gaining momentum as a proven and essential technology that encompasses the
steps of scanning, interpretation, manipulation, analysis, distribution, and
management of whole slide images. These digital whole slide images can be used
for a wide variety of purposes. Since there is such a range of topics related
to digital pathology, the speakers at Pathology Visions have been divided into
two tracks for their presentation: clinical and
Between these two tracks of presenters,
conference attendees will have the opportunity to earn up to 10.5 CME credits.
Headlining the lineup of distinguished presenters is Dr. John Tomaszewski, who
is currently the Professor and Chair of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences at
the University of Buffalo. Tomaszewski’s specialty is genitourinary pathology and
will be the focus of his presentation titled “Data Fusion and 21st Century
Diagnostics”. Tomaszewski, like the other presenters at Pathology Visions,
feels educating attendees about the evolutions in digital pathology is
essential to the field’s advancement.
“Pathology Visions is about mapping out the
future of digital pathology imaging. As such, this meeting is an ideal platform
for discussing and refining the details of the inevitable transition to
computational analytics in digital pathology. The new insights that will evolve
from Pathology Visions 2012 will set the stage for the work of investigators
and practitioners of digital pathology in the coming years,” said Tomaszewski.
Conference attendees will be brought up to
speed on the latest enhancements in digital pathology not only by presenters at
Pathology Visions, but also through participation in cutting edge workshops,
roundtable discussions, networking events, and over 30 exhibitor displays.
