Phillips Digital Pathology

Why go digital?
The following are some of today's challenges in pathology. Increased efficiencies and more accurate diagnostics are crucial to acheive the results
Increasing Workload
  • New cancer cases will rise 70% from 14 million in 2012 to 22 million per year in the next two decades1
Shortage of pathologist
  • 10.4% decrease in active physicians pathology in 2008 - 20132
  • 60.7% of active physicians in pathology are age 55 or older2
  • Time required delays decision making pathology
Troublesome accuracy rate
  • Approximately 20% of current HER2 testing may be inaccurate3
Cumbersome process
  • Cost of shipping glass slides for second opinions is high
  • Decision making delays in pathology account for 41% of delays in cancer diagnosis4
Assessing the need for systems integration
  • 10,000 breast cancer cases per year may be under diagnosed due to the failure to resolve discordant radiology and pathology findings 5

XPLORE & TMA

speed up Research & Bio-marker discover

Xplore - Image and big data management system to support storage, sharing, analysis and archiving.
Xplore is a comprehensive web-based image and big data management system, designed for use in your research settings. It provides a central hub to create, interrogate, share and manage archives both for individual and collaborative studies. You can define study hierarchy, datasets, and fields, and import whole slide or TMA images.
TMA - Biomarker Discovery with Tissue Microarrays
TMA (Tissue Micro Array) is a module designed to speed up research studies which require manual scores of TMA cores. This powerful tool allows you to manually score TMAs online helping you evaluate new tissue biomarkers in TMA quickly and easily.
Using TMA scoring templates, map templates, and an automated de-arrayer, ensures that TMA cores can be rapidly segmented, identified, and sent out for scoring. With a single screen/interface for viewing and scoring, scoring TMAs is easy for the pathologist.
