Evolving Workflow Drives Anatomic Pathology Design
December 2017 - Vol. 6 No. 10 - Page #8

Anatomic pathology (AP) has a profound impact on patient treatment strategies. Advances in both science and technology are revolutionizing AP practice and therefore, the planning and design of the anatomic pathology suite. Anatomic pathology workflow continues to evolve from a highly manual process to more automated processes involving the preparation of microscopic slides for pathologist examination and interpretation. The ongoing march of AP automation is incorporating molecular diagnostic technology and bioinformatics, as well as whole-slide digital microscopy for instantaneous delivery throughout a health care network for computer aided image analysis. As greater value is placed on clinical information gained from digital and molecular pathology testing, unique workflow challenges are created, reflecting the merger of traditional tissue diagnosis with the latest technologies and techniques.
