Telepathology is defined by the American Telemedicine Association as “the electronic multimedia communication across a network of pathology-related information, between one or more locations, pathologists, qualified laboratory personnel, clinicians and patients.”
This particular form of Telemedicine has several applications:
- Remote pathologists can provide a primary diagnosis to a site with no pathologist. (intraoperative examination enables a diagnosis to be provided immediately during surgery)
- A pathologist can request a second opinion or referral from a remote colleague or expert for a complex or ambiguous case.
- Telepathology can include quality assurance, education, and research.
Telepathology is a rapidly growing segment for research across international programs between developing countries and international hospitals and research universities
To speak at this webinar, we have invited Middle East & International experts to discuss;
- Challenges and benefits of Telepathology
- Robotic Telepathology
- Technical feasibility issues such as image quality, bandwidth, hardware selection
- Diagnosis accuracy via Telepathology, and how does this level of accuracy compare with diagnoses made through conventional medical care
- The future of Telepathology for the developing world
- How it changes the way pathologists, laboratory technicians and surgeons work
