A New Paradigm for Cancer Diagnostics - Thursday, June 6, 2013 8:00 am
As more targeted therapies are approved for new molecular subtypes, the number of tests that need to be performed on each patient to determine their subtype increases and very quickly exhausts the very small amount of tumor tissue that is available in routine samples. Join Dr. Downing to learn how Foundation Medicine is addressing these challenges by integrating the practice of Aperio ePathology and other advanced scientific methods, to bring comprehensive cancer genome analysis to routine cancer care.

ePathology for Organ Donor Banks - Expedite your Collaboration! - Thursday, May 2, 2013 11:00 am
Aperio ePathology Webinar
Efficiencies related to time and geographic location are two of the most impressive factors in whole slide imaging (WSI) or eSlide imaging. Donors and recipients are often geographically separated at a time critical moment between harvesting and transplanting the donor organ. Dr. Jakate will discuss ePathology applications as a solution for these challenges. Integrated ePathology offers opportunities for template donor organ access in LIS that is consistent, searchable and instantly electronically reviewable at the recipient end of the chain.
