Webinar Series Focusing on Digital Pathology Starts Tomorrow

Posted May 08 2012 12:00am

The Digital Pathology Association (DPA) in partnership with the Association of Pathology Informatics (API) and CAP Today will host a series of four, one-hour webinars starting tomorrow focusing on the barriers to the adoption of digital pathology. The topics to be addressed during the webinars include: a cultural and strategic perspective, regulatory issues, financial aspects of deployment, and technical issues. Each session will be moderated by Robert McGonnagle, publisher of CAP Today. Each of the four webinars will include several experts in the field who will deliver short and focused presentations, and then will interact with McGonnagle and call-in participants about the major points presented.

These webinars will serve as a bridge between the recent, comprehensive article about regulatory aspects of digital pathology that appeared in CAP Today (see: Digital Pathology and the FDA; WSI Systems Called Class III Devices ) and the two most important, national conferences focusing on digital pathology: (1)  Pathology Informatics 2012 to be held October 9–12, 2012 in Chicago; and (2)  Pathology Visions 2012 , the annual conference of the DPA, to be held October 28-31, 2012.

Mark your calendar for 11 AM to 12 Noon EST for the following dates:

  • May 9. Cultural and Strategic Barriers to the adoption of Digital Pathology with Dr. Sylvia Asa, Dr. Keith Kaplan, & Dirk Soenksen of Aperio.
  • July 25. Financial Barriers to the Adoption of Digital Pathology.
  • September 19. Technical Barriers to the Adoption of Digital Pathology.
  • November 14. Regulatory Barriers to the Adoption of Digital Pathology.

There will be no charge for participating in these webinars, however advance registration is required (see: Sign up for a free DPA account ). The archived version of the webinars will be made available to DPA members only. More details about these events will be published as they become available including the names of the participating faculty members.
