PathVision Helping Pathology

| June 28, 2017 | 0 Comments

Faxitron has released a new video highlighting their PathVision in use at Allina Health in Minneapolis. The video discusses how direct imaging of breast pathology specimens in the gross room facilitate coordinated care with radiology and surgery colleagues to identify mass lesions, surgical clips, localization wires and radioactive seeds. This multi-disciplinary approach with real-time specimen imaging and image sharing with clinical colleagues helps to rapidly identify lesional tissue and/or clips or seeds to try to insure a complete excision and negate the need for additional surgical procedures.

Internal studies at Allina Health at 4 hospitals within their system demonstrated a 22 – 33% reduction in lumpectomy re-excision rates over a 2-year period.

A study published in Breast out of the UK also showed a low incomplete excision rate with the use of the PathVision in their experience. Furthermore, the use of the PathVision as an adjunct technology to facilitate appropriate grossing and block selection has demonstrated a reduced turnaround time and improved efficiency with decreased histology costs at UCLA

If your laboratory processes breast pathology specimens – from cores to mastectomies – check out how Faxitron’s PathVision can improve patient care and laboratory efficiency. Their website has a savings and ROI calculator that can demonstrate time and cost savings to help you assess costs and profits for your laboratory.

PathVision is a Gold Sponsor at the upcoming Digital Pathology Congress next month at the Palmer House Hilton Hotel in Chicago.
