Results such as these and growth in users of digital pathology with software continue to highlight the digital pathology market landscape that makes a couple of points:
The value proposition is about software and continues to highlight the value of what is done with a digital pathology image once a slide is digitized.
A scanner agnostic approach continues to be of value and necessity for software companies and will require hardware manufacturers to also continue to be interoperable with software other than their own.
Cloud computing and specific applications-based solutions for customers will drive continued use and further market adoption. The value in digital pathology will be use-cased base limited only by customers’ needs and expectations that software companies will have to continue to respond to maximize the value of of the whole slide image beyond the creation of that image alone.
