ABSTRACT
Cross-disciplinary and cross-sectorial collaboration is a key success factor for turning the promise of digital pathology into actual clinical benefits. The Nordic symposium on digital pathology (NDP) was created to promote knowledge exchange in this area, among stakeholders in health care, industry, and academia. This article is a summary of the third NDP symposium in Linkφping, Sweden. The Nordic experiences, including several hospitals using whole-slide imaging for substantial parts of their primary reviews, formed a fertile base for discussions among the 190 NDP attendees originating from 15 different countries. This summary also contains results from a survey on adoption and validation aspects of clinical digital pathology use.

Figure 2: Role distribution of survey respondents

Mentions: It is important to acknowledge that the survey respondents represent a biased selection among the pathology community. Since only NDP participants were asked, this means that respondents are likely to be among the most positive to digital pathology and also among the most experienced. There is also a strong geographical dominance from the Nordics and, in particular, Sweden. Of 83 asked to participate in the survey, 49 responses were gathered. The distribution of roles is given in Figure 2. It is likely that the pathologist dominance was even higher for some questions that require deep knowledge of clinical practice.
