Advances in digital pathology with high resolution cameras

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Wed, Feb 11, 2015

In many countries there is a demographic shift to older age groups resulting in increased incidences of cancer and many other diseases. This means an increased number of patients and samples while the number of skilled pathologists is not growing at the same rate.  There is also a desire, especially with the assessment of cancer, to decrease the time for diagnosis to improve treatment results.
