Using Digital Pathology for Primary Diagnosis:

A Swedish Perspective   

Presented by Michael Dictor, MD, PhD, Medical Director of Digital Pathology at Telemedicine Clinic.


While the adoption of Digital Pathology, and next generation ePathology, continues to grow rapidly around the world, there are ongoing concerns about the use of this emerging technology for Primary Diagnosis. 

Learn firsthand from Dr. Michael Dictor, how hospitals and clinics in Europe have overcome the barriers and have used Digital Pathology to remotely diagnose thousands of scanned biopsies and resections with an emphasis on rapid turnaround, double checks, audits and efficient use of laboratory resources.

About Our Speaker: Michael Dictor, MD, PhD

Dr. Michael Dictor began his career in anatomic pathology in Lund, Sweden, where he has continued, with interludes in the US and Denmark. Lund offered a broad experience in autopsy and surgical pathology and later regional consultancies for the departments of OB/GYN, ENT and Oncology in the southern Swedish healthcare region. The early 1990s included leadership in a project to develop the first client-server LIS now in place in most pathology departments in the country. During this time, Dr. Dictor also introduced molecular techniques in routine diagnosis with a subsequent comprehensive approach to rapid molecular assays for diagnostic problems, mainly in haematopathology and infectious disease.

Dr. Dictor continues to review cases in haematopathology and molecular pathology in Lund and has consulted on requirements for a new, web-based LIMS for digital pathology involving four pathology departments in the region. In the summer of 2012, he became the Medical Director in the newly started Digital Pathology section of Telemedicine Clinic, which is headquartered in Barcelona and is the largest provider of teleradiology services to northern Europe. TMC pathologists have remotely diagnosed several thousand scanned biopsies and resections with an emphasis on rapid turnaround, double checks and audits and efficient use of clients’ laboratory resources.
