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
