What is Digital Pathology?
Digital Pathology, which can also be referred to as virtual microscopy, involves the capturing, managing, analyzing and interpreting digital information from a glass slide.
The process involves the generation of glass slides and converting these to digital pathology slides using digital pathology scanning solutions. A digital slide image file is then generated which allows for high resolution viewing, interpretation and image analysis of digital pathology slides.
By leveraging the value of Digital Pathology imaging, PathXL are delivering on a vision for precision medicine, watch our video below to find out more.
