Artificial Intelligence (AI) continues to serve as a valuable tool for innovative pathologists and scientists looking to extract quantitative tissue data. AI APPs empower readers with another data source by highlighting features of interest, including tissue compartments, tumor volume, biomarker positivity, hot spots of cell populations, and more. During this workshop, Dr Giovanni Lujan, the Associate Director of Digital and computational pathology at the OSU Wexner Medical Center and OSU James Comprehensive Cancer Center, will describe The Ohio State University’s adaptation of a fully digital workflow, highlighting their work with Visiopharm’s AI-based software and APPs.
To provide additional technical application details, Jeni Caldara, Visiopharm’s Translational Technical Sales Specialist, will describe the algorithms and workflows underway at The Ohio State University. Jeni will dive into endpoint specifications, time studies, and share a pathologist’s use case. This workshop will conclude with a brief Q&A session.
- Hear from an expert pathologist on their experience with fully digital workflow and how they are teaming up with AI
- Learn more about several of Visiopharm’s Translational APPs, including technical, performance, and analytical validation details
- Experience a real-world use case for implementing AI-based pathologist support
