Leica Microsystems Introduces Complete Case Management Solution for Digital Pathology

Digital Pathology Case Management with dual screen review.Leica Microsystems announce the launch of its clinical workflow solution for Digital Pathology. Digital Image Hub Enterprise* with its powerful image manage­ment, integration and communication capabilities, in conjunction with a new high performance, intuitive client viewer, SlidePath Gateway*, combine to make this the ideal solution for clinical centers moving towards true Digital Pathology implementation. Furthermore, Leica's Total Digital Pathology solutions now provide an implementation of the DICOM Supplement 145 standard for both slide scanning and viewing.

Flexible case aggregation capabili­ties in Digital Image Hub Enterprise utilizes slide barcodes to identify and automatically consolidate multiple slides within a case into a worklist. The system can then automatically associate the slides with appropriate case information by querying the laboratory information management system (LIMS), thus presenting both case information and digital slides concurrently. These compre­hensive and flexible communica­tion specifications enable seamless integration of Digital Pathology with world-leading anatomical pathology LIS providers, such as Cerner CoPath PlusTM and Sunquest (formerly Elekta) PowerPath, as well as additional 3rd party and bespoke systems via the inbuilt flexible Integration Toolkit.

The user-friendly interface and flexible reporting tools in SlidePath Gateway Client enable anatomical pathologists to follow the cases from slide scanning right through to reporting.

For access on the move, pathologists can view their digital slides through multiple modalities including Internet Browsers and iPad, giving anytime, anywhere access to cases for rapid second opinion or fro­zen section review. Access to real time conferencing capability allows users to consult on cases with their peers on demand. Technical controls, to help facilitate HIPAA compliance, enable users and system administrators to be assured of the security and integrity of clinical data.
