“For MLabs, the PathCentral Pathology Network will provide our pathologists with an important new venue to consult and collaborate on cases anywhere in the world,” said Jeffrey Myers, M.D., Director, Anatomic Pathology and MLabs. “The Network will enable us to electronically connect with a broad base of users, and bring our consulting capabilities to new markets and new communities. We’re especially pleased at the truly open nature of the Network, and we look forward to the consults and the interchange that the Network promotes.”
The PathCentral Pathology Network enables physicians to upload case files using digital images for pathologists to review and render critical consulting diagnoses on both a global and a domestic real-time basis.
