Global Pathology Imaging Systems Market: Overview
Pathology imaging systems have evolved steady in recent decades, increasingly driven by rapid technological advances for high-throughput scanning of biomarkers. The improvements have been most noticeable in image quality assessment. The advent of automated whole slide imaging has been a major breakthrough in pathology diagnostics. Its application has enabled swift and high-resolution digital acquisition of pathology images, and in recent years has garnered attention in diagnostic pathology. Traditional pathology follows microscopy as the standard modality. In this regard, the advent of digital pathology and its unprecedented developments in recent years has been expanding the potential of the pathology imaging systems market.
Efforts are ongoing for validating diagnostic quality of digital pathology systems against well-established standards. This will open new evolution trajectories in the pathology imaging systems market. This is likely to benefit a wide range of areas, notably cancer treatment and immunology research. Recent advances made in microscopy for diagnosis in surgical pathology have opened a new paradigm in the global healthcare system. However, so far validation studies have been few and far, thus restraining the use of pathology imaging systems in primary diagnosis in surgical pathology. Moreover, growth in this direction is not steady as several concerns to assert the superiority of automated whole slide imaging to standard microscopy remain. However, with time, pathology imaging systems might see disruption with growth researchers’ efforts to assess whole slide imaging with microscopy in numerous animal studies. Advances being made in digital workflow are expected to create new avenues in the pathology imaging systems market. Rising prevalence of various cancer types, such as breast cancer, in various populations will bolster developments in the pathology imaging systems market. The advent of modular and scalable digital pathology imaging systems also augurs well for its prospects.
Pathology imaging system uses the latest technology of scanners and software for digitizing the slides for pathological examinations. It has replaced the traditional pathology workflow of slides and microscope. By digitizing slides, pathologists are able to examine high resolution digital images of the pathology workflow with the help of precision tools. Using these system, images can be stored in a computer, send to another person and thus improve the pathology workflow. This technology helps in more precise diagnosis by facilitating accurate and timely diagnosis, patient-centric information, eliminate time consuming analog tasks and enhancing the overall lab performance. These systems helped the patients to receive better care and transforming healthcare organizations. With the growing cases of chronic diseases like cancer, it has become important to visualize each and every molecular aspect. Pathology imaging systems have finds its use in all the phases of drug discovery, education, clinical and research and thus has made the anatomic pathology workflow more efficient and effective.
These pathology imaging systems are instinctive solution that benefits various pathologists, healthcare professionals and entire healthcare enterprise. Shift from glass to the digital system opens the way for next generation tools such as advanced image analysis & algorithms. It also helps in new data integration like genomic and molecular testing thus leading to precise and personalized treatment plans.
