Tissue – based diagnosis (surgical pathology) consists of a set of different information components. The analysis of microscopic images is its main contributor, nowadays completed by functional tissue investigations such as immunohistochemistry or reduplication of DNA sequences and gene fragments. These methods require or can be successfully assisted by digital tools such as image analysis, biostatistics, communicative standards, and hospital information systems.
The IT working group focuses on research and routine application of these tools and provides the platform to present results of research, to demonstrate routine applications for better and for worse, to discuss future developments, and to organize institutional and industrial information exchange at the annual ESP conferences.
