9 CME CREDITS OFFERED AT PATHOLOGY VISIONS 2018

Pathology Visions covers 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 education, evaluation and research.

Pathology Visions offers workshops to bring attendees the most cutting-edge educational content, and continuing medical education credits for those in attendance.
