3rd Digital Pathology Congress: USA

UNDERSTANDING & UTILIZING DIGITAL PATHOLOGY AS A TOOL FOR ADVANCING PATHOLOGY PRACTICE & ENABLING ENHANCED PATIENT CARE

Following the success of the last two US meetings, Global Engage is pleased to announce the 3rd Digital Pathology Congress: USA. This year the meeting will be moving to Chicago and will take place on 10-11 July 2017 at the Palmer House Hilton Hotel. The conference is part of their successful digital pathology series which includes the leading European Digital Pathology Congress that takes place annually in December attracting over 380 attendees and which is widely recognized as the leading digital pathology conference in the world.

As experts position themselves to be ready for when primary diagnosis is FDA approved, the congress will examine the applications and benefits of adopting digital pathology as well as the business case to be made for it. With over 200 industry and academic experts expected over the two days, the congress will provide the opportunity to take home cutting edge strategies, analysis techniques, case study examples and methods to allow you to fully understand both the technology and accompanying informatics and image analysis tools and utilize digital pathology to its greatest potential.
