Join us for the Peer-to-Peer Round Table Discussions taking place at Pathology Visions 2018! Connect with your peers by discussing relevant topics in the field of Digital Pathology. Round tables will be held during the Networking Reception on Monday, November 5 from 5:45 - 6:15 PM in Grand Hall AB.
Image Analysis and AI
Moderators: Jeroen van der Laak, PhD, Radboud University Medical Center & Ulysses Balis, MD, University of Michigan
During this round table discussion, we will cover important topics, concepts, and opportunities in this rapidly evolving area, as well as fielding questions from participants with respect to feasibility and anticipated level of difficulty for various envisioned projects and use-cases. In addition, we will attempt to provide a reasonably updated framework of the current state-of-the-art in machine learning, deep learning, and AI, thus empowering the participant to better recognize hype from real claims (or at least, recognize that which is plausible) – which we feel is becoming an increasingly necessary skill, given all the marketing and publicity that these collective fields are receiving.
Interoperability and Image Analysis Algorithms in DP: A Regulatory Perspective
Moderators: Esther Abels, PathAI & Shyam Kalavar, U.S. Food and Drug Administration
During this round table discussion, we would like to discuss FDA perspective on interoperability in DP and mapping it against the pixel pipeline. In addition, the current regulatory perspectives on deep learning algorithms in relation to interoperability will be discussed.
Lessons Learned for Clinical Implementation: Perils and Pitfalls
Moderators: Liron Pantanowitz, MD, UPMC & Sylvia Asa, MD, PhD, University of Toronto
The implementation of digital pathology for diagnostic pathology requires an understanding of possible failures. This roundtable will provide an opportunity to share learnings from applications including intraoperative consultations, primary diagnosis, consultations and tumor boards. Discussants will be able to address technical issues, workflow and downtime procedures.
Using WSI images for academic research and commercialization opportunities: Legal and Ethical Boundaries?
Moderator: Anil Parwani, MD, PhD, Ohio State University
With the advent of large scale implementation of WSI, there are many more opportunities to use these images for research and commercial ventures. We will discuss the practical, legal and ethical issues surrounding these topics.
What CAP is doing for Pathologists in DP
Moderator: Marilyn Bui, MD, PhD, Moffitt Cancer Center
