Titled “The Microscope Enters the Digital Age“, the March / April edition of the BioPhotonics magazine featured an article on Augmentiqs that describes the potential use of the system within the pathology lab of the future.

“Today, the modern pathology laboratory is undergoing an increase in testing, a reduction in the number of pathologists, and cutbacks in reimbursement. The microscope on its own, for all its assistance in detecting cancer and infectious disease, is unable to meet the needs of clinicians working within an increasingly burdened, cost-conscious, and digital health care system. As worldwide demand for pathologists increases, the growing workload and diagnostic subjectivity inherent in the field are driving a search to digitize pathology and, in particular, to leverage the use of analytical software and artificial intelligence (AI).

Adding AR to the microscope eyepiece enables pathologists to access image-analysis software directly within the existing microscope-based workflow. By combining the potential of digital health with the proven advantages of the microscope, the partnership of AI and digital pathology may very well be in sight.”
