Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) October 18, 2012
At the Digital Pathology Association’s (DPA) upcoming annual conference Pathology Visions, being held October 28-30, 2012 in Baltimore, MD, the College of American Pathologists (CAP) Pathology and Laboratory Quality Center will be featuring a special presentation to follow up from the Regulatory Panel featured at Pathology Visions 2011.
The DPA hosted a Regulatory Panel in 2011 titled “Navigating Digital Pathology’s Path to Patients” that gave participants a new insight into the evolving regulatory process for digital pathology products. Now at Pathology Visions 2012, the DPA is yet again highlighting the movement towards validating whole slide images.
CAP Pathology and Laboratory Quality Center’s presentation for Pathology Visions 2012 titled “Recommendations for Validating Whole Slide Imaging for Diagnostic Purposes in Pathology” will focus on answering the question: what needs to be done to validate a whole slide digital imaging system for diagnostic purposes before it is placed in clinical service? The panel making the presentation includes Dr. Liron Pantanowitz, MD, FCAP, Chair; Anil Parwani, MD, PhD, FCAP and Andrew Evans, MD,PhD, FCAP. These panelists conducted a systematic review of international literature and addressed intended use, preparation types, case numbers, equipment, personnel, and process to reach their final recommendations included in the presentation.
In addition to the Regulatory Update, there will be over 40 presenters featured at Pathology Visions 2012. These presentations give attendees the opportunity to earn 11 continuing medical education (CME) credits throughout the conference.
