CAP Inspection Update: Telepathology and Remote Data Assessment


Telepathology and whole slide imaging have become integrated into pathology laboratories worldwide. With applications in teaching and research well established, it is now recognized that digital pathology has a role in the clinical realm as well. 

Digital pathology provides clear advantages for pathologists’ quality assurance processes and performance evaluations as well as streamlined workflows for consultative expert collaborations and multi-disciplinary tumor boards. With the advancement of artificial intelligence and histopathology analytics, there is no limit to the application of digital techniques to the practice of pathology.

Is Young Blood the Key to Solving Serious Health Challenges?

Bella Lugosi is famously quoted as saying, “I vant to suck your blood.” Maybe he was ahead of his time along with the Twilight crew. Three new papers published a few weeks ago in Nature Medicine and Science show exciting implications on reversing aging in studies of blood exchanges between young and old mice. The studies found that infusing the blood of younger mice into older mice rejuvenated their muscles and brains. The opposite appears to hold true too – infusing blood from older mice into younger mice accelerated the aging process.

Sleep is the New Poster Child for Preventing Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity

Well, it’s not really new. For decades researchers have been linking a lack of sleep, disturbed sleep, or a “night shift” schedule to various health conditions. But as the studies mount, so does evidence that the intuitive link between sleep loss and metabolic disorders is actually becoming provable. A new report released this week in The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology Journal pulls together multiple studies that point toward the detrimental effects on health that come with a sleep starved population.
