2nd workshop

Optimizing, Calibrating and Standardizing Digital Pathology Image Display - Image Quality in Digital Pathology from Slide Acquisition to Visualization

In digital pathology, pathologists will be performing diagnostic procedures through images displayed on monitors. Therefore, optimizing, calibrating and standardizing the display devices will be crucial. This workshop will discuss advances in these topics. Novel technology and perceptual evaluation studies for calibrating and standardizing medical image display devices and data for digital pathology will be shown. This will include the standard DICOM that makes possible for pathology groups to store digital pathology images compatible with the same DICOM archive systems used by hospitals to store radiological images. Moreover, different metrics for ensuring image quality and quality assurance through the chain will be analysed.

About Us

This is the 4th workshop of a series of activities including networking, workshops, summer schools and short courses designed within the European AIDPATH project ‘Academia and Industry Collaboration for Digital Pathology’ (FP7-Marie Curie Action). The ‘Optimizing, Calibrating and Standardizing Digital Pathology Image Display’ industrial workshop will present new display technology, standards and different metrics for ensuring image quality applied to Digital Pathology.
