What is digital pathology

A branch of pathology called “digital pathology” focuses on data management using data derived from digitalized specimen slides. Virtual microscopy is used in digital pathology thanks to computer-based technology. Slides made of glass are transformed into digital slides that may be controlled, shared, and examined on a computer screen. The field of digital pathology is expanding and has applications in diagnostic medicine with the use of Whole-Slide Imaging (WSI), which is another name for virtual microscopy, with the aim of achieving effective and affordable diagnoses, prognosis, and disease prediction due to the success in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

Why digital pathology is important?

Digital pathology can produce accurate diagnosis results quickly while also minimising human error. Because of the procedures used in digital pathology, routine tasks can be completed more quickly without sacrificing their quality.

Where is digital pathology used?

Large biopharmaceuticals and top clinical research organisations (CROs) are increasingly using digital pathology to speed up the discovery, pre-clinical, and clinical trial phases of drug development.

What is the future of pathology?

The engine that propels healthcare to comprehend disease is pathology. It continues to function in the same ways that it has for the past 150 years, but it’s time for a change. The field might be pushed to become more scalable and efficient by digital technologies. They could make pathologists’ work more innovative and data-driven while facilitating faster and more precise diagnosis for patients.

3 types of pathology?

 Anatomic pathology

In order to understand the origins and consequences of certain diseases, anatomical pathology     studies organs and tissues.


Dermatopathology is a collaborative specialisation of dermatology and pathology, sometimes known as surgical pathology, that focuses on the microscopic and molecular analysis of cutaneous disorders.

Forensic pathology

The examination of people who pass away abruptly, unexpectedly, or brutally is the forensic pathologist’s area of special competency.
