INFINITT Digital Pathology Solution (IDPS)*
Digital Pathology uses digital slide scanners to convert glass-slide images to Whole Slide Images (WSI) that can be viewed, interacted with and analyzed from a single viewer, and shared via the Internet.
INFINITT Digital Pathology Solution (IDPS) accesses slide images from multiple vendors’ scanners (Aperio, Ventana, 3DHISTECH, Hamamatsu, VisionTek, and more), and standardizes slides into DICOM format. Digitized slide images can then be stored in full quality and rapidly available to multiple users simultaneously. Integration with EMRs and laboratory information systems facilitates electronic workflows, remote consultation and tumor board review.
- Simplifies access to current and historical images once they have been digitized
- Enables image sharing for second opinion and multidisciplinary collaboration
- Allows user to navigate slides in full-view or to compare multiple slides in one view, to mark regions of interest, and to annotate and save annotations
- Supports remote reading through distributed workflow
- Allows images to be analyzed by advanced digital tools and computational tools like artificial intelligence
- Reduces time for exchanging data through image and screen sharing
- Fast image searching & viewing from Pathology or VNA archive
- Supports authentication and user management, enhancing security
- Enables archiving of Whole Slide Image (WSI)/ original file(s) and DICOM file(s) with easy and secure data backup options
- User configurable compression settings for efficient transfer and retention
INFINITT Digital Pathology Solution uses INFINITT Healthcare Platform (IHP) — a standards-based Enterprise Imaging platform that integrates data from multiple specialties– for enhanced interoperability and storage consolidation. IHP has the processing power to manage large pathology datasets at high speed, and includes Information Lifecycle Management (ILM), enabling you to manage the full range of medical information more efficiently.
As regulatory and validation issues become resolved and adoption/utilization of digital pathology grows, large amounts of digital tissue data will become available for use by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). Deep-learning based image analysis algorithms (for detecting, scoring, tracking markers, etc.) will be utilized to improve the accuracy of pathology review and research, and to shorten overall diagnostic turnaround time.
