Much of the excitement related to digital pathology comes from the ability to rapidly move cases from one place to another. Remote access from home, speedy consultations, rapid review of archival material, and access to cases for clinical conferences are just a few of the benefits that accrue from moving from glass slide analog to a digital slide environment. All of these workflows can be accomplished with glass slides but require the presence of the physical case material. With digitization the need for the physical case is negated which leads to the obvious advantages that slides need not ever be “pulled” from the files, and multiple individuals can view the same case at the same time – think about slides traveling to conferences or for consultation which then are needed immediately for clinical care or quality assurance activities. Clearly the digital pathology laboratory facilitates these processes and makes them more efficient (and safe).
