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 4: Predicted use of digital pathology for primary review at the end of 2016. Left: prediction from Nordic symposium on digital pathology 2014 survey. Right: prediction from Nordic symposium on digital pathology 2015 survey

Mentions: The same question was asked for the predicted situation at the end of 2016. As the 2016 prediction was also asked in the NDP2014 survey, the two predictions can be compared. The comparison is presented in Figure 4. As in the previous year, a vast majority expects to soon do digital to some degree, but the difference in predicted adoption rate indicates that the plans for digitization are progressing slightly slower than anticipated. This development pace moderation is in line with reports from the symposium attendees that both funding allotment and procurement processes are causing delays in their digitization efforts.
