However, in order for digital pathology to be able to benefit from IT advancements such as electronic image analysis, archiving, virtualization and workflow documentation, it has to master major challenges. Firstly, there are technological issues such as the management of huge data volumes created by gigapixel virtual slides, or hardware issues surrounding the speed of scanners and the quality of screens. Secondly, there is integration: how will digital pathology be integrated in the overall processes covering pathology, lab and information systems? Mastering these challenges requires implementation of - and blanket compliance with - suitable standards. The race is on!
