Special Session on In Vivo Microscopy at Digital Pathology Conference in San Francisco
Join 3,500 Informatics, Diagnostics, Clinical, and Oncology Researchers at CHI’s Flagship Molecular Medicine Event! In Vivo microscopy represents an innovative area for the pathologist since it circumvents a tissue biopsy and allows real-time imaging of tissues using new imaging modalities that do not require processing. Validation is required to make this the gold standard for use by pathologists. Learn about newer, non-invasive techniques that will change current practices dramatically.

Histology is an accepted “gold standard” to manage most diseases. Newer non invasive, in vivo technologies are gaining popularity and are becoming routine tests in many specialities, especially skin. Confocal microscopy is one such tool which has potential to change dermatology practice drastically.

Ex vivo microscopy (EVM) is the histologic evaluation of human tissues in real time, without processing, using light of various wave lengths. Uses of EVM include: 1. intraoperative assessments and selection of most significant tissue for frozen section; 2. intraprocedural adequacy assessment of needle biopsies; 3. tissue selection for molecular/genetic studies; and 4. documentation of histology of biobanked tissues. Prompt, definitive diagnosis facilitates patient care, saving the patient and the medical system money.

Clinical uses of real-time, rapid imaging of unprocessed fresh biopsy or excisional tissue by EVM include the intra-operative assessment of tumor margins or sentinel nodes, specimen triaging for tissue bank storage, and biopsy adequacy for molecular genomic studies. The validation of biologically-based image contrast with biomarkers linked to the tissue diagnosis “gold standard” made by pathologists is critical to the successful translation of optical imaging technology to the clinical arena.
