PV20 VENDOR SHOWCASE
Live Q&A: Thursday, October 29 | 10:20-10:35am PT
That Was Easy! Enabling Remote Frozen Sections
During this showcase, Dr. Enric Solans joins Motic Digital Pathology to demonstrate how his lab has enabled real-time remote consultations with Motic's FS-Live software. Watch as Dr. Solans walks viewers through how he uses a telepathology system to conduct a Frozen Section evaluation.
FS-Live enables remote evaluation and consultation on time-sensitive, routine surgical procedures. Working in conjunction with a whole-slide image scanner, FS-Live allows pathologists and other lab members to view a pathology case in seconds from anywhere, eliminating costly travel time for hospitals and improving quality of care for patients.
In the session, Dr. Solans will demonstrate:
- A dermatopathology case involving frozen section slides
- His slide-scanning and remote live view workflow
- How he uses the FS-Live interface to quickly navigate, adjust, and assess the slide
- How he hones in on areas of interest for preliminary evaluation (presence/absence of malignancy, evaluation of margins and assessment of adequacy)
The session will also include a short wrap-up discussing the consultative, collaborative and educational benefits offered by a telepathology system. Have a question they didn’t address? Join us for a Live Q&A on October 29th, from 10:20-10:35 AM.
