Data and Sessions Management in a Telepathology Platform

Pedro Nunes, Rui Jesus, Rui Lebre, Carlos Costa

Abstract

Digital pathology refers to the acquisition, storage, and interpretation of pathological data gathered by scanners and displayed in a digital environment, using a distributed network system. This paper discusses the challenges and opportunities of a collaborative platform applied to digital pathology considering the advantages that it may carry on regarding education and training but also new paradigms of telepathology and telemedicine. Furthermore, it proposes the implementation of a secure collaborative platform that integrates a web pathology viewer with personal areas and virtual archives. The described approach introduces a modern collaborative concept into the digital pathology workflow supported by a customized medical imaging infrastructure where data management is ensured by an innovator DICOM standard multi-repository server. The solution was designed to serve distinct usage contexts, including telepathology and e-academy.
