Digital Pathology & AI Congress: Asia

Implementing Digital Pathology to Improve Workflow Efficiency and Standardisation of Image Analysis

Co-host: Korean Society of Pathologists

It is becoming increasingly clear that artificial intelligence is going to shape the practice of pathology in years to come. For this reason, the 2020 congress has expanded coverage on AI and computational pathology practices and technology. As well as exploring clinical image analysis and LIS integration, the meeting includes diagnostic and clinical case studies.

“I learned a great deal from people experience in AI” Solution provider company
“Good talks and an excellent environment for networking” Delegate
“Great opportunity to meet world-class leaders, experts and vendors” Delegate
Talks were from renowned speakers and the exhibition space was excellent” Speaker

Whether you are looking to hear more about the adoption and integration of digital pathology, seeking collaborations and tools to increase workflow or uncover the latest developments in automated image analysis, the congress is one not to be missed!

Proxima™: A New Whole Slide Spatial Biomarker Analysis Platform

Spatial biomarker discovery and exploration tools for the assessment of multiplex immunofluorescence tissue sections produce a wealth of data in high dimensional space. Many times, these tools are often locally based, leading to bottlenecks in the processing of large studies and difficulty in data sharing. To enable collaboration across geographical and organizational boundaries, reproducible results in the face of changing IT departments, and scalable computing power, organizations are deploying cloud-based, digital pathology workflows.

At this workshop, Akoya Biosciences, will present Proxima, its newest digital pathology platform for the management and analysis of multiplex immunofluorescent digital slides. We will discuss a strategy that will enable organizations to operate existing workflows without disruption as they transition to the cloud, while applying new tissue analysis tools for deeper understanding of spatial biology.

  • Organizational management of their cloud-based user pool: assigning roles and permissions on a per-study basis
  • Authenticated and secure login for access to shared imagery and analysis results
  • Open-source script sharing for flexible data exploration
  • Scalable, cloud-based processing for rapid whole slide analysis and mapping/visualization of complex spatial interactions between cells
