A novel software platform drastically decreases image-rendering times, integrates automated image analysis, and enables improved case sharing between pathologists.

The Roche (Basel, Switzerland) uPath enterprise software for digital pathology can help pathologists diagnose a patient case more quickly by viewing all slides in a single continuous view, as well as viewing all available patient information simultaneously. The multiple slides, which are presented on a canvas-like display, enabling seamless navigation between hematoxylin and eosin (HE), immunohistochemistry (IHC) and special stains in a single view, thanks to Leeds Virtual Microscope (LVM) technology, which is not possible with a standard microscope.

Analyses, both automated and manual, and slide markups are easily managed in the multi-slide viewer, while reporting features allow pathologists to aggregate notes, measurements, and slide scoring into easy-to-share images or PDFs. The customization offered through the uPath configurable interface and scalability allows pathologists to request second opinions and share cases in a fraction of the time that has traditionally been required, with no geographical limitations, unlike glass slides. LVM technology can also scale to display sizes ranging from laptops to high-definition wall screens.

"With this launch, we are able to deliver an improved digital pathology experience. We're excited to offer pathology labs a high-quality solution to help improve workflow efficiencies, accuracy, and precision tools,” said Jill German, Head of Roche Tissue Diagnostics. “This launch is another major milestone in our commitment to the advancement of patient care through digital pathology, empowering pathologists to deliver next-level personalized healthcare solutions.”

Digital pathology is an image-based information environment, which is enabled by computer technology, allowing for management of information generated from a digital slide. It is enabled in part by virtual microscopy, the conversion of glass slides into digital slides that can be viewed, managed, shared, and analyzed on a computer monitor. With the advent of whole-slide imaging, digital pathology is currently regarded as one of the most promising avenues of diagnostic medicine.
