From the book reviews:
“This relatively brief text provides a nice introduction and overview of the technology, history, and uses of telepathology as enabled by whole slide imaging. Intended for novices to the field, its six chapters cover the history, hardware/software, common applications, role in image analysis, use case examples, and predictions about the near horizon. … I found the book easy to read and understand, and it does a nice job of introducing a novice to ‘digital pathology’.” (John H. Sinard, Journal of Pathology Informatics, Vol. 6 (12), 2015)
“This is a short, concise book for individuals with minimal experience in the field who want to learn more. The audience includes pathologists with a particular interest in the history and future of digital pathology. It could also serve as a reference for other medical professionals who have an interest in learning more about the field.” (Raquel K. Walsh Jahnke, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2014)
From the Back Cover
Digital pathology has experienced exponential growth, in terms of its technology and applications, since its inception just over a decade ago. Though it has yet to be approved for primary diagnostics, its values as a teaching tool, facilitator of second opinions and quality assurance reviews, and research are becoming, if not already, undeniable. It also offers the hope of providing pathology consultant and educational services to under-served areas, including regions of the world that could not possibly sustain this level of services otherwise. And this is just the beginning, as its adoption by the also rapidly-emerging fields of medical systems biology and 3D tissue imaging indicate.
This work describes how digital pathology not only has the potential to dramatically impact medical education and the delivery of health care, but also to exert an immensely positive influence worldwide, including in countries and regions that normally fail to benefit from such technological advances.
