One significant development in the field of digital pathology in the past five years has been the increasing use of AI and machine learning algorithms to assist with the analysis of digital slides. These algorithms can be trained to recognize patterns and features in pathology images and can potentially improve diagnostic accuracy and efficiency.
Pathologists quality decreases with workload
In the United States, for example, the number of pathologists per 100,000 people is estimated to be around 20 and decreasing steadily over the years.
Computer Vision Tasks in Pathology
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms have the potential to improve the accuracy and efficiency of pathology diagnosis by assisting with the analysis and interpretation of pathology images. In particular, AI algorithms can be trained to recognize patterns and features in digital pathology images that may not be immediately apparent to a human observer. This can be particularly useful in situations where there is a large volume of data to be analyzed or when the diagnosis requires the identification of subtle changes in tissue structure.
AI algorithms can also be used to automate certain tasks in the pathology workflow, such as the identification and annotation of tissue structures or the detection of specific markers or abnormalities. This can save time and reduce the workload for pathologists, allowing them to focus on more complex or challenging cases.
Consistently good Sensitivity
Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to improve the accuracy and efficiency of pathology diagnosis by assisting with the analysis and interpretation of pathology images. There is a growing body of research that suggests that AI algorithms can be trained to accurately recognize patterns and features in digital pathology images and to assist with the diagnosis of various diseases.
However, it is important to note that AI algorithms are only as good as the data they are trained on, and the accuracy of AI-based diagnostic tools may vary depending on the quality and diversity of the training data. It is also important to carefully evaluate the performance of any AI-based diagnostic tool before it is adopted in clinical practice
Seamless integration with Scanners
AI algorithms can also be used to automate certain tasks in the pathology workflow, such as the identification and annotation of tissue structures or the detection of specific markers or abnormalities. This can further improve efficiency and accuracy by reducing variability in the interpretation of pathology images.
Engaging the ecosystem of app developers
3rd party support for algorithms, input devices, third party apps (API) and import of third party image formats
Massive continued testing
Building one of the deepest pools of Gastrointestinal pathology data for AI application development
Cornerstone collaboration with the Dartmouth Geisel School of Medicine
Securing major vendors to support product development and launch
Building on a proprietary intellectual property portfolio
It is important for scanner manufacturers to have partnerships with medical institutions in order to ensure that their products are tested and validated in a clinical setting, and to help advance the field of medical imaging.
Pathology Research Institutions
Pathology research institutions are organizations that focus on the study of disease and the changes that occur in the body as a result of disease. This may include the study of specific diseases, such as cancer or cardiovascular disease, as well as more general areas of research such as cellular and molecular pathology. Pathologists often work closely with other healthcare professionals, such as doctors and nurses, to diagnose and treat diseases. Pathology research institutions may be affiliated with hospitals, universities, or other research organizations and may be involved in a variety of research activities, including basic and clinical research.
