Lundström C, Thorstenson S, Waltersson M, Persson A, Treanor D - J Pathol Inform (2015)

Bottom Line: Techniques for digital pathology are envisioned to provide great benefits in clinical practice, but experiences also show that solutions must be carefully crafted.The Nordic Symposium on Digital Pathology (NDP) was created to promote knowledge exchange in this area, between stakeholders in health care, industry, and academia.This article is a summary of the NDP 2014 symposium, including conclusions from a workshop on clinical adoption of digital pathology among the 144 attendees.

ABSTRACT
Techniques for digital pathology are envisioned to provide great benefits in clinical practice, but experiences also show that solutions must be carefully crafted. The Nordic countries are far along the path toward the use of whole-slide imaging in clinical routine. The Nordic Symposium on Digital Pathology (NDP) was created to promote knowledge exchange in this area, between stakeholders in health care, industry, and academia. This article is a summary of the NDP 2014 symposium, including conclusions from a workshop on clinical adoption of digital pathology among the 144 attendees.

Figure 3: Current use of digital pathology among survey respondents

Mentions: The survey first asked: “Today, to what degree do you use digital images of histology slides in your practice? (In % of all histology cases.)” The results are shown in Figure 3, showing moderate levels of adoption but no use in about 50% of respondents. Another bias to note for these questions is that several people from the same institution may have responded. Since the most digitized sites Kalmar and Linköping had several attendees, these numbers are likely to represent higher usage than numbers on a per site basis.
