Ventana expands its portfolio of digital pathology solutions with the release of VENTANA Vector software for education and collaboration
“Digital pathology is gaining widespread adoption for medical education and training. The release of VENTANA Vector software expands our Digital Pathology portfolio to address the growing needs of the pathology education market. The software will make pathology training more accurate and cost-effective, while empowering students with collaborative learning strategies,” said Vikram Mohan International Business Leader, Digital Pathology, Ventana Medical Systems, Inc.
Not surprising, many medical schools are abandoning the light microscope as the primary teaching tool in pathology. VENTANA Vector software can help standardize training content by enabling students to view high quality, consistent slide images, and eliminate the frustration of having to share limited resources such as slide sets and multi-head microscopes.
“Now we can pick the best slides, scan them and use the same digital slide set for all students. They can all access the same teaching materials anytime from their computer, tablet or smart phone.” Dr. Sung Professor of Pathology, Women & Infants Hospital Providence Rhode Island
The VENTANA Vector software platform is unique in the digital pathology market in offering a fully customizable interface, ability for users to view on mobile devices with both Cloud and local hosting options and is fully compatible with iScan Coreo and VENTANA iScan HT slide scanners.
