This study presents a validation of the digital pathology system to assess the feasibility of remote slide review and evaluate the performance and usability of whole slide scanners and viewers. Pathologists at Memorial Sloan Kettering, a world leading cancer center, reviewed digitized whole-slide images, followed by a review of the same case on traditional glass slides.
The study emphasized the value of digital pathology, finding:
- Major diagnostic equivalency was 100% between digital and glass slide diagnoses.
- There was 100% intra-observer digital to glass slide diagnostic concordance when reporting from a remote site.
