At Pathology Informatics 2011 in Pittsburgh

Author: Riley Alexander, MD, MBA

It's been a long day, but I finally made my way into Pittsburgh after a long drive. I'll be here this week for Pathology Informatics 2011 to look at new and upcoming developments in information management and digital imaging as it pertains to pathology. For a field that to many seems staid and somewhat "old school" to most in med school (myself included at the time) pathology is going through a slow (hesitant?) revolution in the way its pushing the digitization of glass slides and the rapidly advancing areas of molecular diagnostics. I will plan on reporting with some interesting technologies discussions throughout the week.

And I'll be and get a post up about my thoughts on the iPhone 4S unveiling today. I had a long day of traveling today so am just now getting caught up on the press release.
