Almost four years ago, Mayo Clinic launched the Digital Pathology Program, a major pathology initiative. Phase 2 of this multi-phase rollout has recently been completed, which involved the implementation of cutting-edge digital equipment and software, and converting glass slides of patient samples into digital images. The conversion enables pathologists and laboratory technologists to view, store, retrieve, and share medical images more universally, without waiting for glass slides to be retrieved and delivered. This has significantly improved patient care because pathologists can now discuss cases with clinicians and surgeons in real time.
In this episode of “Answers From the Lab,” host Bobbi Pritt, M.D., chair of the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology at Mayo Clinic, sits down with Joaquin Garcia, M.D., chair of Mayo Clinic’s Division of Anatomic Pathology and digital pathology program to discuss how the advent of digital pathology is changing patient care at Mayo Clinic.
As Mayo Clinic’s Anatomic Pathology moves from traditional glass slides to digital images, the advance in technology is achieving clear benefits in collaboration, learning, and patient care.
Dr. Jason Hipp joins the hosts of “Beyond the Scope,” a podcast from the Digital Pathology Association, to discuss advances he’s seen in pathology informatics over the course of his career and talk about where the field is heading now.
Successful implementation of a new slide scanning and analysis platform across five laboratories represents a significant step forward in Mayo Clinic’s digital pathology program — an initiative that combines advanced technology with human expertise to better serve patients.
As chair of Mayo Clinic’s new Division of Computational Pathology and AI in the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, Jason Hipp, M.D., Ph.D., is eager to employ the most innovative tools available to benefit patients around the globe.
Mayo Clinic is harnessing the extraordinary potential of digital pathology through a robust initiative that’s using the technology to enhance patient care. Mayo’s Dermatology Department is an early adopter, and clinicians, students, and patients are all reaping the benefits.
