We are working to transform and convert the pathology clinical workflow in NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde to a fully digital pathology service. This is one in which all the histology glass slides produced by the department are digitised to Whole Slide Images (WSI) in a glass slide scanner.

Aims / Objectives

The key objectives of this project are:

  • Full integration & deployment of Philips glass slide scanning equipment
  • Expansion of local data storage to accommodate digital transition
  • Training of pathology laboratory technicians in scanner operation
  • Redesign of laboratory workflow for digital pathology
  • Training and validation for pathologists in digital pathology reporting
  • Integration of digital pathology into pathology trainees training program
