Overcoming Common Pathology Challenges
We partnered with The Solution Lab to survey dermatologists across the country and find out what dermatopathology pain points they are facing.
Top Dermatopathology Pain Points
65% of dermatologists still receive their pathology reports via fax.
Barriers to Using Whole-Slide Imaging (WSI)
42% of dermatologists indicated they don’t use WSI because they aren’t familiar with any digital imaging vendors.
Limited Access to Experts
Nearly 70% of dermatologists said they would like their cases to be read by more experts nationwide.
Long Turnaround Times
Turnaround time on pathology reports currently takes about a week, and most dermatologists think going digital will greatly reduce that time.
Feedback from Survey Participants
I work in multiple offices, and having access to digital slides enables me to review more efficiently.

Inconvenience of Physical Slides
A patient needed slides sent to a specialist. I didn’t have an efficient way of sending slides. . . . At that moment, I [wished] I had the ability to send digital slides.
