Pathology Visions 2012 | Regulatory Update

The DPA will hold a special presentation in follow up to the Regulatory Panel at Pathology Visions 2011, where the College of American Pathologists (CAP) Pathology and Laboratory Quality Center will present:


Recommendations for Validating Whole Slide Imaging for Diagnostic
Purposes in Pathology
* | Monday, October 29 | 1 PM | Hilton Baltimore

The CAP Pathology & Laboratory Quality Center, “the Center,” a forum for developing evidence-based guidelines and consensus recommendations, convened a non-vendor expert panel from North America in June 2010, to answer the key question: “What needs to be done to “validate” a whole slide digital imaging system for diagnostic purposes before it is placed in clinical service?” The panel conducted a systematic review of international literature and addressed intended use, preparation types, case numbers, equipment, personnel, and process. The final recommendations incorporated both the feedback from the open comment period last summer and the strength of evidence from the current literature.

Please join Dr.  Liron Pantanowitz, MD, FCAP, chair; Anil Parwani, MD, PhD, FCAP and Andrew Evans, MD,PhD, FCAP, members of the panel, as they discuss the rationale and participate in a Q&A session.

KEYNOTE PRESENTER: Dr. John Tomaszewski

Professor and Chair of Pathology & Anatomical Sciences at the University
of Buffalo

Dr. John Tomaszewski is a pioneer, educator, author and leader in the pathology field, and has been announced as the Keynote Presenter for Pathology Visions 2012. Tomaszewski’s topic for his keynote presentation is “Data Fusion and 21st Century Diagnostics”.

His knowledge in the field of genitourinary pathology and versatile skill set has earned him awards and recognition worldwide. The research he conducts focuses on the application of quantitative image analysis, computer vision, and machine learning to diagnostic problems in prostate and other cancers. He sees the field of “integrated diagnostics” with the fusion of large quantitative high resolution imaging and molecular data sets as the paradigm for the new 21st century diagnostics. Tomaszewski will touch on this and more in his keynote presentation. This research has resulted in the publication of over 250 peer-reviewed manuscripts, over 40 published reviews, book chapters, editorials, and books, and numerous awards.
