The COVID-19 pandemic continues to dominate the news worldwide. Although some countries have already started lifting restrictions, COVID-19 is very likely to affect our lives for months, if not years to come.
- In the current situation, safety is at the top of the list – working from home, the pathologist is not exposed to health risks at the hospital.
- Working with digital slides, the pathologist may be able to help set up a diagnosis much quicker than using the traditional method, even from home.
- Digital tools such as image analysis applications or teleconsultation can greatly increase the accuracy of the diagnosis.
- Lastly, although cost effectiveness is not a top priority during a pandemic, digital pathology can ultimately bring major cost savings to the laboratory.
In addition, digital pathology offers obvious patient benefits as well: increased precision of diagnosis and faster treatments are probably what matter most.
