| November 27, 2013

Interesting news from DigiPath mentioning integration of their scanners in Kanteron Systems’ launch of TMIS which will provide a fully integrated hardware and software solution for radiology, genetic and pathology workflow.  This will be on hand next week at the trade show of all trade shows in the life sciences – RSNA in Chicago.  DigiPath will likely join Philips and GE which also provide scanning solutions for digital pathology as well of course as market leaders in radiology imaging.  

What other digital pathology vendors will be at RSNA?  Are you attending RSNA as a pathologist looking for integrated solutions such as this?

Henderson, Nevada, USA, November 26, 2013

DigiPath, Inc. (OTCBB: DIGP) will integrate pathology scanners in Kanteron Systems’ launch of the world’s first Translational Medical Imaging System (“TMIS”) at the Radiology Society of North America (“RSNA”) annual meeting in Chicago, December 1-5, 2013. TMIS will be a fully integrated hardware and software solution for radiology, genetic and pathology workflow.

Translational research is an emerging field that aims to provide a better understanding of the molecular basis of disease, which in turn will inform clinical practice and ultimately improve human health.

Kanteron Systems’ cutting-edge medical imaging and hospital information solution TIMS unifies for the first time molecular imaging (genomes, proteins and metabolic), functional imaging (physiology), and anatomical imaging (anatomy), graphs, and workflows along with their increasingly voluminous amounts of metadata, to produce the most complete and unified visualization, enabling researchers and clinicians to reach precise diagnostics with unparalleled ease and speed.

TMIS is fully interoperable with PACS-Vendor Neutral Archive, EHR, RIS, and LIS via standards-compliant protocols and formats (like DICOM and HL7). TMIS also includes a zero-footprint remote single interface for access to PACS, VNA, RIS, WorkList Server, radiology, genetics and Digital Pathology image viewer that includes zoom, pan, measure, annotate, and report tools functions.

DigiPath’s PathScope™ provides the hardware functions to affordably digitize pathology slides.  PathScope reduces the adoption cost of digital pathology by over 50%, with the ability to hold between 1 to 200 slides, up to 5 objectives, in both scanning and live video modes.

“Kanteron’s clients have demanded the ability to integrate radiology, pathology and genetics data into a single platform, including an affordable digital pathology scanner.” stated Jorge Cortell, Chief Executive Officer of Kanteron Systems.  “With PathScope™, we will be able to offer our clients the most cost effective solution available on the market today.” 

“TMIS takes the first step towards managing big data generated by our research clients.” said Eric Stoppenhagen, President of DigiPath, Inc. “By combining TMIS with PathScope, our clients will be able to mine the big data for future research gains in cost effective manner.“

Stop by RSNA 2013 Booth # B7510 to see the benefits of TMIS and PathScope.
