Biography: Dariusz Borys
Digital pathology is a dynamic, image-based environment which enables the acquisition, management and interpretation of pathology information generated from a digitized glass slide. Healthcare applications include primary diagnosis, diagnostic consultation, intraoperative diagnosis, medical student and resident training, manual and semi-quantitative review of Immunohistochemistry (IHC), clinical research, diagnostic decision support, peer review and tumor boards. In the last decade digital pathology was rapidly expanding as an essential technology tool to support medical education, tissue based research, drug development and the practice of clinical pathology. This presentation is to highlight application of digital pathology application in daily clinical practice, education and research.
