Clinical Guidelines for Telepathology is an update to the American Telemedicine Association (ATA) original guideline published in 1999. The guidelines provide guidance on specific clinical applications, practice, benefits, limitations, and regulatory issues. Clinical applications addressed in the guidelines include: primary diagnosis, intraoperative consultations, secondary consultations, and quality assurance that may result in amended cases. The guidelines apply to all types of telepathology configurations, regardless of hardware, including static (store and forward), dynamic (synchronous) and hybrid static-dynamic implementations.
