Digital Pathology Workflow

Currently, the standard Digital pathology workflow begins with the procedure performed on the patient, most commonly a biopsy or a resection. The material is then sent to a pathology division associated by an order (ideally in a digital way), along with appropriate clinical information. This information regularly comes out of the local electronic health records, simultaneously with localization and clinical information of the material. When the material is received in the pathology department, it is registered in the local laboratory information system before undergoing the necessary procedure in order to be managed to glass slides. Then, the glass slides are observed under a light microscope in order to create the pathology report. Switching the current workflow to a fully digital one would require glass slides to be scanned prior to sending them to pathologists, which can add cumulatively to the overall diagnosis time. This can be concentrated by using speed scanners and integrating the scanning with the cover slipping and staining method. Thus, digital pathology workflow is incorporated into the institution overall operational environment.
