Agfa teams with Canadian hospitals for pathology research

Agfa HealthCare has reached an agreement with the pathology department of the Enfant-Jésus and Saint-Sacrement Hospitals in Quebec City, Quebec for a three-year collaboration to conduct research to integrate digital pathology into the diagnostic workflow.

The goal of the research is to create a complete, single view of patient pathology information to improve workflow and communication for clinicians on the care team and complement clinical decision-making, according to Agfa.

By digitizing all images and storing them in one location, researchers hope to foster collaboration among pathologists, oncologists, surgeons, radiologists and other care team members.
