Start time: 12:00pm
End time: 5:00pm
Sign up to this free special event that will give you the opportunity to hear about the current and future direction of digital pathology from Hamamatsu Photonics.
The purpose of this event will be to provide presentations from Hamamatsu and current users from across Europe regarding their experiences, both positive and overcoming challenges of whole slide imaging. There will also be an opportunity to have hands on experience with both Hamamatsu hardware and software.
This event will be held the day before the 2nd Digital Pathology Congress and at the same venue. Our workshop will offer the perfect opportunity to create a forum to exchange ideas, form new collaborations and develop a new community for digital pathology.
Prof. Marco Novelli, Consultant Histopathologist and Professor of Gastrointestinal pathology, University College London, UK
Prof. Niels Grabe, Head of Epidermal Systems Biology Research Group, Hamamatsu Tissue Imaging and Analysis Centre, University Heidelberg, Germany
Prof. Gaetano Bulfamanate, San Paolo Hospital, Milan, Italy
Dr. Catherine Guettier, Head of Pathology Department, Hospital Bicêtre, Paris, France
Dr. Hasan Rizvi, Consultant Histopathologist, Bart’s and the London NHS Trust and Hon Senior Lecturer of Pathology, Queen Mary University of London, UK
|Event Name||Hamamatsu Photonics Digital Pathology Workshop|
|Schedule||December 2, 2015|
|Venue||London Heathrow Marriott Hotel|
|12:00 - 13:00||Registration and Lunch|
|13:00 - 13:20||Matthew Burke PhD||NanoZoomer - A Decade strong an still innovating|
|Hamamatsu has been providing the NanoZoomer range of scanners and associated software for more than a decade. This presentation will provide an overview of our story so far and the future direction and developments that we will be providing to further advance the benefits of digital pathology to clinicians, lecturers and scientists.|
|13:20 - 13:50||Prof. Marco Novelli||Virtual microscopy – the UCL experience updated|
|UCL have been using a NanoZoomer system for ten years. This presentation will give an overview and of their experience to date from initial use in research projects and the developing use for virtual images in clinical use.|
|13:50 - 14:20||Dr. Catherine Guettier||Telepathology network in Ile de France: An 18-month experiment project for frozen sections (tele-diagnosis) and second opinion diagnosis (tele-expertise)|
As with many countries a lack of pathologists is causing increasing issues, concern and workloads for pathologists. This talk will discuss:
|14:20 - 14:50||Prof. Gaetano Bulfamante||Digital Pathology Milan Diagnostic Network (DPMDN); Advantages & critical issues|
For the first time in Italy, regional government has declared “Digital slides” as a health document, defining rules concerning production, use and storage. This Act is a milestone and will exploit all Digital Pathology potentials of converting this instrument from a “researcher toy” to a highly efficient tool for the management of big numbers of patients and samples.
As an example, San Paolo hospital Units of Human Pathology produces and manages more than 140,000 diagnostic slides and starting in 2016, this number will triplicate as the lab will produce slides for histological, cytological and immunohistochemical analyses for other hospitals in Milano area. This talk will cover the benefits of the techniques and workflows implemented and the key requirements that are still required to maximise these benefits in the future.
|14:50 - 15:40||
Coffee Break and Hamamatsu Workshop
Opportunity to have hands on experience with the latest NanoZoomer scanner and associated software
|15:40 - 16:10||Prof. Niels Grabe||Fully automatic, standardized analysis of immune cell biomarkers in prostate carcinoma immunotherapy|
It is increasingly recognized that only Digital Pathology is able to deliver quantitative, objective read-outs in clinical trials. Especially this is the case in immunotherapy with its dependency on the complex composition of the tumor microenvironment. Using deep learning we have developed the first fully automatic platform for the analysis of immune cells in prostate carcinoma with autonomous identification of tumor microenvironment compartments including tumor, normal ducts and stroma. This segmentation is then used to derive abstract spatial immunological landscapes of immune cells eliminating the need for defining a fixed invasive margin. Examples of obtainable data profiles are shown; demonstrating that manual annotation of slides through pathologist can and should be overcome in biomarker studies in clinical trials, especially in immunotherapy.
|16:10 - 16:40||Dr. Hasan Rizvi||Simulation in Pathology Education – learning to fly|
One of the key benefits to digital pathology has been the use in education and training. This talk will include:
|16:40 - 17:00||Q&A session with speakers – Where next for digital pathology?|
|17:00 - 18:00||Drinks reception|
