Digital Pathology 2016

Track1:  Strategy and Technology

To formulate medical decisions, healthcare experts require that all essential information is both are accurate and easily accessible. Collaborative Digital Anatomic Pathology discus about the use of information technology that supports the formation and distribution or exchange of information, including metadata and images, throughout the complex workflow monitored in an Anatomic Pathology department from specimen reception to report transmission and exploitation. Collaborative Digital Anatomic Pathology is supported by standardization efforts towards interoperability and knowledge representation for shareable and computable clinical information. Digital Pathology expands the limits of microscopy, enabling students, educators, researchers, and clinicians to contribute tissue samples. Images transmitted or shared over the Internet or through specific analysis software open the path to a modern and exciting microscopy tool. Digital Pathology excludes some of the issues associated with sharing slides such as the degeneration of samples and inability to share samples of live cells.  Benefits include: Diagnostics – a hospital can transmit images anywhere in the world, probably decreasing the time it takes to accordingly diagnose and treat a pathogen. Education – colleges and universities can approach an enormous database of samples, via on-line or through a web database, saving fund on histological slides; students and professors will also have the capability to study images of live and dead cells Finances – savings can be establish from decreasing or eliminating purchases of glass slides, cover-slips, adhesives and dyes as well as the cost to conserve and send pathology exhibit to colleagues or institutions

Track 2: Pathology Informatics

Pathology Informatics concentrates on the management and analysis of clinical and research pathology data using modern computing, communications and digital imaging methods. The Division of Pathology Informatics has grown to a nationally acknowledged informatics organization at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) prepares pathologists grows to be leaders in the development and application of informatics in educational, industry and/or community practice settings. Sharing digital pathology images for firm wide use into a picture archiving and communication system (PACS) is not yet extensively adopted. We share our solution and 3-year experience of broadcasting such images to an Enterprise Image Server (EIS). A computerized picture archiving and communications system (PACS) has been successfully used in the stream of radiology for storage, rapid retrieval, and widespread access to digital images. Digital images can be captured using multiple modalities and many PACS users at different sites can have at the same time, remote access to images. Both computerized images and reports can be transmitted digitally via PACS. Whole slide imaging (WSI), also indicated to as "virtual" or wide-field microscopy, associate with digitization of glass slides, which resembles light microscopy (i.e. "digital slides"). WSI produces high-resolution digital images and associates with relatively high speed digitization of glass slides of different samples (e.g. tissue sections, smears), scanning them at various magnifications and focal planes (xy and z axes). Compared to immovable (still) and live (usually robotic) digital images, WSI is commonly more beneficial for educational purposes.

Track 3: Telepathology

Telepathology can be described as the electronic transmission of digital images of pathology for education, examination, diagnosis, or conference. Since its first proof-of-concept demonstration in 1968, this technology has resulted in close to 600 magazines and has been used with ever-growing rate throughout the world. From a medical point of view, telepathology has developed from point-to-point transmission of live or near-live video images, to the capture of digital images of preferred  microscopic fields for storage and future transmission, to robotic control of the microscope with quick point-to-point transmission, to improvement of software that simplifies Web-based consultations and interactions, to the generation of virtual slides that characterize the entire slide for stress-free Web site access or for storage. The basic machineries of a telepathology system are a microscope with an attached digital camera connected to a computer. Basic systems deliver an image that can be stored and sent via e-mail or the Internet to a professional for consultation. The cost and difficulty of a basic simple system increases with the accumulation of a robotic microscope and point-to-point transmission but permits the observer to control slide movement, concentration, and use objective selection. Virtual-slide technology, the most expensive of the possibilities for telepathology, forms a particular single image of a glass slide. These tools combine an objective (310 to340) with computerized stage and digital camera with the computer power to promptly obtain a sequence of images that are automatically stitched together in software and compressed to form a single image file of the slide. All of these systems are presently used for all phases of telepathology, but each differs in its applicability in providing pathology financial assistance for countries in the developing world or in regions with limited resources.

Track 4: Digital Image Analysis

digital image composed of pixels performs an analog image transformed to numerical form using ones and zeros (binary) so that it can be stored and used in a computer system. The digital imaging process consists of four key steps: image acquisition (capture), storage and management (saving), manipulation and annotation (editing), and viewing, display or transmission (sharing) of images. Before digital images become extensively used for periodic clinical work, standards are needed and the entire imaging process approved. For example, when six practicing pathologists were asked to all photographs the same section on a glass slide with similar microscopes that had the same associated digital cameras, they all produce dissimilar images.  Moreover, global manipulation (e.g. contrast enhancement) of Papanicolaou test digital images has been shown to significantly change their interpretation. We also need to pay more consideration to the digital pathology diagnosing station (cockpit) to that they integrate computers with appropriate performance and graphics cards, screens with exceptional image resolution and color quality, as well as connectivity to the Internet, laboratory information system (LIS) and electronic medical record (EMR). The use of computer monitors for digital pathology should, possibly, employ a Macbeth color manager (array of color squares) or correspondent to guarantee precise color balance once a digital image has been developed, computer applications can be leveraged to evaluate the information they hold. More than a few algorithms have been developed (e.g. pattern recognition algorithms) that potential to increase accuracy, reliability, specificity, and productivity. For example, computer assisted image analysis (CAIA) has been used to score (quantify) certain immunohistochemical stains (e.g. ER, PR and HER-2/neu breast biomarkers). In this manner, CAIA gives all pathologists the similar yardstick for scoring immunohistochemistry results in Breast cancer cases. This quantitative method to tissue analysis using WSI has been stated to as "slide-based histocytometry". Multispectral image analysis is additional emerging device that exploits both spatial and spectral image statistics to classify images. This computerized technology has already been shown to be important in certain clinical settings (e.g. cytopathology) to help distinguish and classify morphologically similar lesions.

Track 5: Digital Pathology Applications and Research Case Studies

Prior to slide digitization, skilled pathologists examined clinical trial data to determine evidence of disease and diagnose disease by reviewing glass specimen slides utilizing microscopes. To acquire interpretations, more than a few sets of slides were arranged from each patient’s tissue block, each slide comprising a different level of tissue, and shipped to reviewers. As a result of the alteration in tissue levels, variability in inter-reader interpretations of specimens was improved. Digital pathology decreases such variability by providing reviewers with matching digital images of patients’ tissue.  The field of digital pathology has exploded and is now regarded as one of the most promising avenues of diagnostic medicine in order to attain even better, faster and inexpensive diagnosis, prognosis and prediction of cancer and other significant diseases. Digital pathology and the implementation of image analysis have grown rapidly in the last few years. This is mostly due to the implementation of whole slide scanning, improvements in software and computer processing capacity and the increasing position of tissue-based research for biomarker discovery and stratified medicine. This review sets out the key application regions for digital pathology and image analysis, with a particular emphasis on research and biomarker discovery. Digital pathology and image analysis have significant roles across the drug/companion diagnostic improvement pipeline including biobankingmolecular pathology, tissue microarray analysis, molecular profiling of tissue and these significant developments are reviewed. Underpinning all of these significant developments is the necessity for high quality tissue samples and the effect of pre-analytical variables on tissue research is discussed. This requirement is merged with practical advice on setting up and running a digital pathology laboratory.

Track 6: Digital pathology versus Traditional Microscopy

Digital pathology can be considered as an adjunct to traditional microscopy. In traditional microscopy, we require a microscope to view the glass slide. We can only view one slide, one field of view, and one exaggeration at a time. If we want to do any sort of analysis with a microscope, we have to remember the information from each field of view. For example, if we want to associate two slides, we have to look at one slide, store the information in our brain bank, look at the slide, and try to remember the one we looked at prior to make a comparison. In digital pathology, we have the benefit of doing things different way. We can view some digital slides on a computer monitor. We can combine them side-by-side if we want to calculate the entire cells or calculate protein expression; these can be done easily by computer software that can be seen on an image file and it is called a digital slide. In case of traditional microscopy, if we want to transfer the data with someone in a distant place, the slide has to be mailed. But with digital pathology, we can transmit the data with anyone in the world directly. It is also comparatively very easy to integrate a digital pathology system into a laboratory data system. Digital pathology can support the monitoring and consolidation of different sources of information required for pathological purposes to do work more proficiently and innovatively.

Track 7: Digital Pathology Environment

Digital pathology is extensively more than whole slide imaging (WSI); it has data security and creates an environment for handling data that consists of multi-gigabyte images that are merged. It also comprises integration of the digital pathology data management system with autostainers, converslippers, and the laboratory management system. It comprises the following elements. Conventional glass slides are converted to digital slides using a scanning device. Digital slide scanners are considered as successors of early telepathology systems that facilitated the transfer of static and dynamic images via computer networks for remote consultation and second opinion. Digital slides are accessible for viewing through computer system and viewing software either locally or remotely via the Internet. Digital slides viewers can show an overview image, along with high-power view, enabling better orientation. Showing two or more slides side-by-side is a characteristics of many slide viewers, which can be useful for analyse the same tissue contaminate with different stainings. Digital slides are sustained in an information management system that permits archival and intelligent retrieval. Educational and examination slides end up in the constant storage where they are kept without an invalidating time frame. Object-based storage offers overall redundancy of stored objects without the necessity to take incremental backups. Digital slides are maintained in a data management system that allows for archival and intelligent retrieval. Image examination tools are used to derive objective quantification procedures from digital slides. Pattern recognition and visual search tools are used to categorize specimen imagery and discover medically significant regions of digital slides. Digital pathology workflow is integrated into the institution's overall operational background. Digital pathology also permits internet information transmitting for education, diagnostics, publication and research.

Track 8:   Digital Pathology Workflow

Currently, the standard Digital pathology workflow begins with the procedure performed on the patient, most commonly a biopsy or a resection. The material is then sent to a pathology division associated by an order (ideally in a digital way), along with appropriate clinical information. This information regularly comes out of the local electronic health records, simultaneously with localization and clinical information of the material. When the material is received in the pathology department, it is registered in the local laboratory information system before undergoing the necessary procedure in order to be managed to glass slides. Then, the glass slides are observed under a light microscope in order to create the pathology report. Switching the current workflow to a fully digital one would require glass slides to be scanned prior to sending them to pathologists, which can add cumulatively to the overall diagnosis time. This can be concentrated by using speed scanners and integrating the scanning with the cover slipping and staining method. Thus, digital pathology workflow is incorporated into the institution overall operational environment.

Track 9: Digital Pathology Utility in The Future

Many articles are being published regarding its use in routine pathologic diagnosis. Validation of a WSI system for primary diagnosis in surgical pathology has been studied. Even the concordance between digital pathology and light microscopy in general surgical pathology has been studied in a pilot study of 100 cases, and it was found that digital pathology is a safe and viable method of making a primary histological diagnosis. Digital pathology is being increasingly tried in the interpretation of immunohistochemistry (IHC) markers. Interpretation of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2/neu) immunohistochemical expressions with unaided as well as computer-aided digital microscopy as well has been documented. Digital pathology has penetrated classrooms, especially pathology teachings. It can effectively replace the traditional methods of learning pathology by providing mobility and convenience to medical students.

Track 10: Current Status and Future Perspectives

During the last decade pathology has promoted from the quick progress of image digitizing technology. The development in this technology had led to the formation of slide scanners which are incapable to produce whole slide images (WSI) which can be discovered by image viewers in a way comparable to the conventional microscope. The file size of the WSI varies from a few megabytes to several gigabytes, leading to contests in the area of image storage and management when they will be used regularly in daily clinical practice. Digital slides are used in pathology for education, diagnostic purpose (clinicopathological meetings, consultations, revisions, slide panels and, increasingly, for direct clinical diagnostics) and archiving. As an alternative to conservative slides, WSI are usually well accepted, especially in education, where they are obtainable to a large number of students with the full possibilities of annotations without the problem of difference between serial sections. Image processing techniques can also be functional to WSI, providing pathologists with tools assisting in the diagnosis-making procedure.

Track 11: Dermatopathology and Diagnostics

Dermatopathology is a subspecialty of both pathology and dermatology in which acceptable clinical info is needed to a valid tissue diagnosisDermatopathology is a subspecialty of anatomic pathology that emphases on the skin and the respite of the integumentary system as an organ. It is unique, in that there are two pathways a physician can take to obtain the specialization. All universal pathologists and general dermatologists train in the pathology of the skin, so the word dermatopathologist signifies either of these who has reached a certainly level recognition and experience. Dermatologists are able to identify most skin diseases based on their arrivals, anatomic distributions, and behaviour. Sometimes, however, those criteria do not lead to a conclusive diagnosis, and a skin biopsy is taken to be observed under the microscope using usual histological tests. In certain cases, additional specialized testing wants to be executed on biopsies, comprising immunofluorescenceimmunohistochemistryelectronmicroscopyflow cytometry, and molecular-pathologic analysis

Why Manchester?

Manchester, city and metropolitan borough in the metropolitan county of Greater Manchester urban county, northwestern England. Most of the city, including the historic core, is in the historic county of Lancashire, but it includes an area south of the River Mersey in the historic county of CheshireManchester is the nucleus of the largest metropolitan area in the north of England, and it remains an important regional city, but it has lost the extraordinary vitality and unique influence that put it at the forefront of the Industrial Revolution. Manchester was an urban prototype: in many respects it could claim to be the first of the new generation of huge industrial cities created in the Western world during the past 250 years. In 1717 it was merely a market town of 10,000 people, but by 1851 its textile (chiefly cotton) industries had so prospered that it had become a manufacturing and commercial city of more than 300,000 inhabitants, already spilling out its suburbs and absorbing its industrial satellites. Manchester occupies a featureless plain made up of river gravels and the glacially transported debris known as drift. It lies at a height of 133 feet (40 meters) above sea level, enclosed by the slopes of the Pennine range on the east and the upland spur of Rossendale on the north. Manchester’s climate is most kindly described as mild, moist, and misty. The temperate climate is without extremes: winters are mild, with a January mean temperature of 39 °F (4 °C), and summers are cool, with a July mean temperature of 59 °F (15 °C).
