Connecting Your Digital World
So you want to transition to digital pathology. Where will you store your images, and how will you share them with colleagues?
By now, every pathologist has heard of “digital pathology,” and many use it in some form, whether for teleconsultation, image analysis or something else. But not everyone is aware of the practicalities of digitization. What infrastructure supports your computer-based work? How will you store, protect, access and share your digital files? Pathologists and data infrastructure experts discuss…
With almost infinite data storage and sharing possibilities available, how can pathologists match their infrastructure to their needs?
You may well be familiar with the digital interfaces used in pathology, but how well do you know the supporting infrastructure?
While obtaining degrees in biology from the University of Alberta and biochemistry from Penn State College of Medicine, I worked as a freelance science and medical writer. I was able to hone my skills in research, presentation and scientific writing by assembling grants and journal articles, speaking at international conferences, and consulting on topics ranging from medical education to comic book science. As much as I’ve enjoyed designing new bacteria and plausible superheroes, though, I’m more pleased than ever to be at Texere, using my writing and editing skills to create great content for a professional audience.
