Hospital for Special Surgery launches 1st FDA-approved digital pathology platform


New York City-based Hospital for Special Surgery became the first facility to launch technology for the digitization of pathology slides.

The system, Sectra Digital Pathology Solution, lets pathologists scan and upload slides into a single repository where orthopedic surgeons, radiologists and other care team members can view them, according to a Feb. 9 news release.

This will allow specialists across HSS to share and discuss tissue samples in real time, and the digital slides will be available to view simultaneously. Access to digital pathology images is expected to improve patient care and efficiency in discussing complex cases.
