Why Panoptiq is Useful for Frozen Sections
Theoretically speaking if we ask ourselves what would make the you know a good system for frozen section diagnosis in today's laboratory setting.
Efficient image acquisition is necessary since the patient is on the surgery table as they're undergoing anesthesia and there're also often times multiple frozen sections that may be sent up and handled at the same time.
By having a system that is capable of the efficiency required in a frozen section lab is very useful.
The Need for Speed
For the real-time image streaming secure encryption of the images at rest and in transmission is crucial. Hospital centers may undergo security assessments and approval before allowing any transmission of images over a network from a third-party vendor. The image transmission being a rich data stream will also require no lag or latency for optimal user experience. The optimal network performance should definitely be evaluated and having options for real-time image streaming or viewing of scanned images by a technician is very useful.
This enables the pathologist to have or view the same field of view as the operator or independently pan zoom the slide as if it were scanned by whole slide scanner. These digital technologies also allow for virtual annotations that are superimposed over the digital images. These annotations can be documentation of pathology findings or instructions to the operator.
