UPMC’s Dr. Jeffrey Fine to Present at Third Annual Digital Pathology Conference – Part of the 22nd Annual Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference
Join 3,000 Informatics, Diagnostics, Clinical and Oncology Researchers in San Francisco

SPEAKER SPOTLIGHT: No More Glass: Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) Permits Pathologist-Ready Photomicrographs without Microscope Slides
Jeffrey Fine, M.D., Assistant Professor, Pathology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an advanced imaging technique that permits rapid non-destructive microscopic tissue imaging. Dr. Fine will provide a pathologist-friendly overview of OCT, followed by a summary of early ex-vivo imaging of breast and endometrial specimens. This work aims toward clinical application and toward OCT expertise that can support future in vivo applications. Dr. Fine will end with discussion of future trends for this technology. PubMed
