CME CREDITS AT PATHOLOGY VISIONS 2013


Pathology Visions will cover a broad range of topics relevant to digital pathology. Digital pathology is growing rapidly as a method of viewing microscopic glass slides virtually. It encompasses the steps of scanning, interpretation, manipulation, analysis, distribution, and management. Digital images can be used for a wide variety of purposes, from clinical practice, to education, evaluation, and research. It is a key driver to getting the right slide to the right pathologist and enables diagnostic collaboration and the promise of workflow enhancements/efficiencies.

Accreditation Statement
Pathology Visions has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint sponsorship of the Indiana State Medical Association (ISMA) and the Digital Pathology Association. The ISMA is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. All education formats are 30 minute lectures with the exception of the keynote and closing presentations which are one hour and the Day 2 workshops which are 3 hours. 

Course Objectives
At the close of this program, participants should be able to:

  1.   Recognize what digital pathology is and how it can be used in the practice of pathology
  2.   Identify the barriers to application of digital pathology
  3.   Critique the methodology used in digital pathology
  4.   Describe the impact of digital pathology on standard pathology practice workflow
  5.   Discuss the various analytic algorithms that can be applied to digital pathology and how they are best implemented
  6.   Explain the importance of validation of digital images and algorithms
  7.   Defend the important niche applications of digital pathology and how they might be applicable to individual
        practice settings.
  8.   Demonstrate how to evaluate digital slide scanners and supporting software in order to maximize your investment
  9.   Identify the key drivers to adoption of whole slide imaging
10.   State the challenges associated with interfacing a digital pathology system to an anatomic pathology information system

Credit Statement
The Indiana State Medical Association designates these lectures for a maximum of 12 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
