Pathogenesis™ - Digital pathology platform

A digital histology platform for use in training, education, conferences and events.
Technology No. 40038-1

Background

The advent of digital pathology has transformed this area of histopathology by allowing pathology slides to be scanned by high resolution scanners producing a whole slide image (WSI). This allows easy sharing of slides and access to pathology images using computers and smart devices, especially useful for the training and education of students and pathology trainees. Furthermore, digital pathology and access to WSI also allows remote discussion of cases facilitating a wide range of online educational events. The School of Clinical Dentistry, University of Sheffield has been at the forefront of this digital revolution being the first UK institute to adapt a fully digital microscopy undergraduate course which has been run successfully since 2007 and have also been actively involved in further research and optimisation into this area both for didactic teaching and clinical training.
