“Using a microscope for tumor estimation is subjective and leads to high variability amongst pathologists,” said Marlon Thompson, General Manager, Philips Digital & Computational Pathology. “By digitizing the tissue slide and analyzing the image with robust computational software and intelligent algorithms, we can better support pathologists’ workflows and help labs enhance quality and reliability, while reducing costs by limiting the number of molecular tests performed with insufficient tumor content.”
AI-powered solutions have great potential to make solutions adaptive to the needs of clinicians to help them further improve patient outcomes and care efficiency. Philips is at the forefront of using advanced analytics and artificial intelligence in key healthcare domains and launched its AI platform for healthcare earlier this year.
To demonstrate Philips’ commitment to AI and computational pathology technologies, the recently renamed Philips Digital & Computational Pathology business will showcase the latest version of TissueMark at ECP 2018. In addition to TissueMark, attendees will have an opportunity to experience the company’s comprehensive portfolio of digital pathology systems, including the Philips IntelliSite Pathology Solution, which helps labs to enhance efficiency of pathologists’ workflows with the potential to improve cost savings and drive efficient care.
