  • Dr. Orndal discusses how to successfully leave the microscope behind in the transformation to digital pathology, and the impact on lab processes, diagnostic workflows and the mindset of the pathologist

  • Unilabs Pathology Sweden has successfully implemented digital pathology for histopathology cases, in part by using the Philips Digital Pathology Solution for image management and scanning
  • Dr. Orndal shares how obstacles and limitations have been resolved, and discusses challenges and benefits of adopting a digital pathology solution, including keys to success

“If you’re good at pathology with a microscope, you will be good at pathology on the screen.”
