Digital Pathology |

Fourth Annual
Digital Pathology
Transforming Medicine in a Digital World
March 7-9, 2016   |   Moscone North Convention Center   |   San Francisco, CA
Part of the 23rd Annual Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference

Early Bird Deadline this Friday for CHI’s Fourth Annual Digital Pathology Conference
Join 3,000+ Informatics, Diagnostics, Clinical and Oncology Researchers in San Francisco 

The Fourth Annual Digital Pathology conference will cover the full spectrum of topics currently making an impact on the digital pathology practice. Whole slide imaging has the potential to improve efficiency and cost-effectiveness, while providing access to high quality care in areas that are currently under-served. Many nations are leading the way with the use of whole slides images for primary diagnosis, while the United States is trailing behind. This year we will evaluate progress being made and the advantages of taking strides to digitize information to share images and data across institutions as well as encourage adoption by medical institutions and thereby lending expertise across geographic areas. Technical prowess in new technology, data analysis, machine learning and IT infrastructure in addition to standardization of practice will be highlighted. This conference will bring together leaders in the field that are truly committed to shape the future of medicine.
