The scope Digital Pathology 2018 of covers almost major topics of clinical and medical research, but not limited to the below segments:
Digital pathology is a dynamic, image-based environment that enables the acquisition, management and interpretation of pathology information generated from a digitized glass slide. Digital imaging today represents more of an evolution than a revolution in pathology. With the advent of clinical trials (e.g. teleconferencing), pathologists today are beginning to interact more with each other. However, more integration of digital photo frame with computer systems is needed, as well as standards for the entire digital imaging process.
Digital pathology can be considered as an adjunct to traditional microscopy. In traditional microscopy, we require a microscope to view the glass slide. We can only view one slide, one field of view, and one exaggeration at a time. If we want to do any sort of analysis with a microscope, we have to remember the information from each field of view. In Digital Pathology, we have the benefit of doing things different way. We can view some digital slides on a computer monitor.
In case of traditional microscopy, if we want to transfer the data with someone in a distant place, the slide has to be mailed. But with digital pathology, we can transmit the data with anyone in the world directly.
Track-3: Digital Imaging Modalities:
Medical imaging is the technique and process of creating visual representations of the interior of a body for clinical analysis and medical intervention. medical imaging constitutes a sub-discipline of biomedical engineering, medical physics or medicine depending on the context: Research and development in the area of instrumentation, image acquisition (e.g. Radiography), modeling and quantification are usually the preserve of biomedical engineering.
Digital Imaging modalities are the part of biological imaging and incorporates radiology which uses the imaging technologies of X-ray radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, medical ultrasonography or ultrasound, endoscopy, elastography, tactile imaging, thermography, medical photography and nuclear medicine functional imaging techniques as positron emission tomography (PET) and Single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT).
Track-4: Digital Image Analysis:
Digital imaging offers many advantages over conventional film based imaging, the most compelling of which is the ability to store, retrieve, distribute and review images at any time and in any location which is appropriately networked. This means that the referring physician, the patient and the radiologist can all be in different locations, both to one another and to the stored image, but still communicate effectively. Digital image analysis include Computer aided diagnoses, 3D imaging, Biomarker analysis.
Telepathology is the practice of pathology at a distance. It uses telecommunications technology to facilitate the transfer of image-rich pathology data between distant locations for the purposes of diagnosis, education, and clinical research.
Telepathology has been successfully used for many applications, including the rendering of histopathology tissue diagnoses at a distance, Remote robotic microscopy ,Forensic Pathology ,Teleconferencing. Although digital pathology imaging, including virtual microscopy, is the mode of choice for telepathology services in developed countries, analog telepathology imaging is still used for patient services in some developing countries.
Track-6: Digital Pathology Application:
Virtual microscopy and advances in machine learning have paved the way for the ever-expanding field of digital pathology. Multiple image-based computing environments capable of performing automated quantitative and morphological analyses are the foundation on which digital pathology is built. The applications for digital pathology include Tissue-based imaging , Biomarker research and Biobanking in the clinical setting are numerous and are explored along with the digital software environments themselves, as well as the different analytical modalities specific to digital pathology.
Pathology informatics is an interdisciplinary information science discipline primarily concerned with the collection, classification, manipulation, data storage, retrieval and dissemination of information to solve problems in pathology. Informatics studies the representation, processing, and communication of information in Cloud computing, Access through mobile devices, Pathology PACS, Pathology IT and Integration with LIMS/LIS natural and engineered systems. It has the aspect of computational pathology, cognitive pathology and social pathology.
Track-8: Diagnostic Pathology:
Diagnostic Pathology is a branch deals with examination of body tissues and their examination. Microscopical study of abnormal tissue development, disease determination, histopathology of lesions and sometimes post-mortem. It does research on critical diagnosis in surgical pathology.
Biomedical engineering (BME) is the application of engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology for healthcare purposes (e.g. diagnostic or therapeutic).
Prominent biomedical engineering applications include the development of biocompatible prostheses, various diagnostic and therapeutic medical devices like MRIs and EEGs,cardio vascular surgical devices ,ranging from clinical equipment to micro-implants, common imaging equipment such as MRIs and EEGs, regenerative tissue growth, pharmaceutical drugs and therapeutic biological.
Track-10: Pathology Digital Analysis Software:
Image Analysis software provides easy-to-use solutions for the automated quantitative evaluation of bright field and fluorescent slides. Powerful image analysis software solutions combined with an intuitive interface enables users to easily tailor algorithms to their own specific needs.
Track-11: Dermatopathology and Diagnostics:
Dermatopathology involve study of the microscopic morphology of skin sections. It mirrors pathophysiologic changes occurring at the microscopic level in the skin and its appendages.
The complete sequencing of the human genome has ushered in an era of medical advances and it is due to Human Genome Project(HGP) .that was previously unimaginable. Scientists are continually discovering novel genetic and epigenetic mechanisms that are associated with human disease states and therapeutic responses. The ability to determine the underlying defect in single-gene diseases, many of which are rare, has improved both diagnosis in symptomatic patients and risk prediction of future disease in asymptomatic individuals.
Track-12: Radiology & Imaging Sciences:
Radiology is a specialty that uses medical imaging to diagnose and treat diseases seen within the body. A variety of imaging techniques such as X-ray radiography, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine including positron emission tomography (PET), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are used to diagnose and/or treat diseases. Interventional radiology is the performance of medical procedures with the guidance of imaging technologies.
Track-13: Pathology & Biomedical Informatics:
Biomedical Informatics is the field that is concerned with the optimal use of information, often aided by the use of technology and people, to improve individual health, health care, public health, and biomedical research. Biomedical Informatics is positioned with scientific, financial, and regulatory challenges faced by the healthcare industry to apply technology know-how at every step from design to execution and to FDA application.
Track-14: Medical Informatics & Telemedicine:
The role of medical informatics in telemedicine is dependent on using the power of the computerized database to not only feed patient specific information to the health care providers, but to use the epidemiology and statistics information in the data base to improve decision making and ultimately care. The coupling of medical informatics with telemedicine allows sophisticated medical informatics systems to be applied in low population density and remote areas.
Track-15: Future of Digital Pathology:
We are living in an exciting time when disease diagnostics and treatment are becoming more accurate and patient specific. Computerized imaging technique are beginning to assist the pathologist and radiologist in making an accurate diagnosis of disease and identify morphological features correlated with prognosis. Molecular profiling of disease promises to help the clinician understand the underlying biology of the disease and suggest new and more effective therapeutics.
The goal of our research is aimed at a future when disease diagnostics will involve the quantitative integration of multiple sources of diagnostic data analysis , including genomic imaging, proteomic imaging and metabolic data acquired across multiple resolutions that can distinguish between individuals or subtle variations of the same disease to guide therapy.
Track-16: Advance Technology in Digital Pathology:
New technology is transforming digital pathology and has the potential to enhance diagnostics in several ways. These include improving the integration of data, consultation among experts, and quantitative and qualitative image analysis.
Whole slide imaging (WSI) uses computerized technology to scan and convert entire pathology glass slides into digital images at high resolution, which are then made available to pathologists. One of the most important aspects of digitization of slides is the ability to perform image analysis and computer-aided diagnostic tools on WSI.
IHC markers, WSI system, Melanoma Biopsies, Electronic Aspirin, Needle-Free Diabetes Care, Robotic Check-ups, Detecting Lung Cancer with a Cough, Prenatal DNA Sequencing etc. are the few advance technology in Digital Pathology.
Digital pathology is a picture based environment which allows the storage and management of information generated from the digital slide. Digital pathology provides various kinds of environments such as scan, view, manage, network, analyze, integrate and sharing. Digitization of tissue slides offers pathologist ease of diagnosis and detection of disease. Further, digitized tissue can be analyzed by computer algorithms. This results in less human error and high efficiency. Apart from this, the digitized tissue can also be stored and further used for educational purposes. Digital pathology is gaining traction among hospitals and research laboratories due to above mentioned advantages of Digital Pathology over conventional pathology.
