Pathologists at Michigan Health Find Evidence That COVID-19 Survivors Who Continue to Experience Respiratory Symptoms May Have Had Lung Disease Prior to Being Exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus

These findings hint at the role of pre-existing conditions in raising the risk of an individual having a severe case of COVID-19 once infected At the University of Michigan, a team of pathologists have been researching the factors that might cause some patients infected by SARS-CoV-2 to suffer persistent respiratory problems, often described as “long COVID.” They have identified factors that place some individuals at higher risk for these problems. Little is known about how the SARS-CoV-2...

Dermatopathologists May Soon Have Useful New Tool That Uses AI Algorithm to Detect Melanoma in Wide-field Images of Skin Lesions Taken with Smartphones

MIT’s deep learning artificial intelligence algorithm demonstrates how similar new technologies and smartphones can be combined to give dermatologists and dermatopathologists valuable new ways to diagnose skin cancer from digital images Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and other Boston-area research institutions have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm that detects melanoma in wide-field images of skin lesions taken on smartphones. And its use could...

Research Study Shows Cardiac Ultrasound AI May Be Superior to Anatomic Pathologists at Predicting COVID-19 Death Risk

WASE-COVID Study also found that use of artificial intelligence technology minimized variability among echocardiogram scan results Many physicians—including anatomic pathologists—are watching the development of artificial intelligence (AI)-powered diagnostic tools that are intended to analyze images and analyze the data with accuracy comparable to trained doctors. Now comes news of a recent study that demonstrated the ability of an AI tool to analyze echocardiograph images and deliver analyses...

New AI-based Digital Pathology Platform Scheduled to Roll Out across Europe Promises Faster Time to Diagnosis, Increased Accuracy, while Improving Pathologists’ Work Lives

As the worldwide demand for histopathology services increases faster than the increase in the number of anatomic pathologist and histopathologists, a DP platform that suggests courses of treatments may be a boon to cancer diagnostics Europe may become Ground Zero for the widespread adoption of whole-slide imaging (WSI), digital pathology (DP) workflow, and the use of image-analysis algorithms to make primary diagnoses of cancer. Several forward-looking histopathology laboratories in different...

Attention All Surgical Pathologists: Algorithms for Automated Primary Diagnosis of Digital Pathology Images Likely to Gain Regulatory Clearance in Near Future

Hello primary diagnosis of digital pathology images via artificial intelligence! Goodbye light microscopes! Digital pathology is poised to take a great leap forward. Within as few as 12 months, image analysis algorithms may gain regulatory clearance in the United States for use in primary diagnosis of whole-slide images (WSIs) for certain types of cancer. Such a development will be a true revolution in surgical pathology and would signal the beginning of the end of the light microscope era. A...
