Digital pathology (DP) implementations vary in scale, based on aims of intended operation. Few laboratories have completed a full-scale DP implementation, which may be due to high overhead costs that disrupt the traditional pathology workflow. Neither standardized criteria nor benchmark data have yet been published showing practical return on investment after implementing a DP platform.
Complete digital pathology and whole slide imaging for routine histopathology diagnosis is currently in use in few laboratories worldwide. Granada University Hospitals, Spain, which comprises 4 hospitals, adopted full digital pathology for primary histopathology diagnosis in 2016.
Cancer incidence is increasing in sub-Saharan Africa, yet there is little information on the capacity of pathology laboratories in this region. We aimed to assess the current state of pathology services in Nigeria to guide strategies to ensure best practices and improve the quality of surgical specimen handling.
Stain variation is a phenomenon observed when distinct pathology laboratories stain tissue slides that exhibit similar but not identical color appearance. Due to this color shift between laboratories, convolutional neural networks (CNNs) trained with images from one lab often underperform on unseen images from the other lab. Several techniques have been proposed to reduce the generalization error, mainly grouped into two categories: stain color augmentation and stain color normalization. The former simulate...
Clinical laboratories are obligated to implement Logical Observation Identifier Names and Codes (LOINC), an informatics standard used to uniquely identify laboratory tests. The historical progress of laboratories in achieving this goal is unknown.
Haemostasis laboratories play a critical role in diagnosis and treatment of individuals with bleeding or thrombotic disorders. Routine coagulation assays such as prothrombin time (PT)/ international normalized ratio (INR), and activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT), are used in monitoring of anticoagulant therapy, as provided for treatment/prevention of thromboembolic disease, and also inform on potential haemostasis dysfunction. Increasing pressure is applied on clinical laboratories to improve respo...
Northwell Health Laboratories were established in 1997, serving the Northwell Health system. In 2008, the health system considered minority entry into a joint venture with a commercial laboratory. Based on arguments made by Northwell laboratory leadership, the decision was made to retain full ownership of the laboratory.
The first reports of carbapenem resistance in Enterobacteriaceae isolates occurred in the early 1990s. Researchers published the first report of an isolate that produced Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase in 2001. Since that time, carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae isolates have disseminated globally. Microbiology laboratories are integral to the control of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE). Laboratories need to be able to identify CRE, identify possible therapeutic alternatives, and so...
The goals of the Association for Molecular Pathology Pharmacogenomics (PGx) Working Group of the Association for Molecular Pathology Clinical Practice Committee are to define the key attributes of PGx alleles recommended for clinical testing and a minimum set of variants that should be included in clinical PGx genotyping assays. This document provides recommendations for a minimum panel of variant alleles (Tier 1) and an extended panel of variant alleles (Tier 2) that will aid clinical laboratories when des...
Background Glomerular filtration is the most important kidney function. The most accurate glomerular filtration rate (GFR) estimates are based on the clearance of exogenous filtration markers. Of these, iohexol is the only exogenous marker that is included in an external quality assessment (EQA) scheme. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the performance of the European laboratories participating in Equalis' EQA scheme for iohexol. Methods Weighed amounts of iohexol (Omnipaque) were added to plasma...
Immediate reporting of critical values or test results significantly outside the normal range has a growing role in the management of patients, especially in life-threatening conditions. Due to the lack of international consensus, diverse approaches are used for determination of thresholds, reporting, documentation, and follow-up. In this study, we assessed how Iranian laboratories manage critical values for hemostasis.
To investigate pathology awareness in patients applying to a pathology laboratory. Method: This cross-sectional study included 150 patients and patients' relatives. A questionnaire, prepared by the researchers according to the literature, was administered at the Pathology Laboratory, Necmettin Erbakan University, Konya, Turkey on May 2018.
Frederick Banting, Charles Best, J. Bertrand Collip, and J. J. R. Macleod contributed to the discovery of insulin in 1921-1922. Recent advances in anatomic pathology, experimental pathology, and clinical pathology were necessary for the research in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, to begin and to succeed.
Domestic carnivores can introduce rabies into disease-free countries or areas if they are incubating the disease and transported during the pre-symptomatic period. For pets moved into the European Union, the European Commission decided to establish a system of community approval of laboratories willing to carry out the rabies serological controls to guarantee an effective control system. As the specific institute to coordinate the approval of the laboratories, designated by the European Commission in 2000, ...
Liquid biopsy testing is rapidly emerging as a diagnostic means of identifying circulating free DNA (cfDNA) disease-associated variants. However, the reporting of cfDNA variants remains inconsistent due in part to the application of multiple testing pipelines which raise uncertainty about current cfDNA detection efficiency. External quality assurance (EQA) programs are required to monitor, evaluate and help improve laboratory performance for cfDNA variant detection and in clinical interpretation. This study...
Anatomic pathology (AP) laboratories provide critical diagnostic information that help determine patient treatments and outcomes, but the risks of AP operations and their impact on patient safety and quality of care remain poorly recognized and undermanaged. Hospital-based laboratories face an operational and risk management challenge because clinical work of unknown quantity and complexity arrives with little advance notice, which results in fluctuations in workload that can push operations beyond planned ...
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) diagnostics continue to expand rapidly in clinical medicine. An ever-expanding menu of molecular biomarkers are deemed important for diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic assessment in patients. The increasing role of NGS in the clinic is driven mainly by the falling costs of sequencing. However, the data-intensive nature of NGS makes bioinformatic analysis a major challenge to many clinical laboratories. Critically needed NGS bioinformatics personnel are hard to recruit a...
There is an ongoing perception that the pathology job market is poor, which may be discouraging medical students from pursuing the specialty. Academic pathologists believe that jobs are available but relocation may be necessary.
To evaluate the performance of laboratories accredited by the National Health System that perform cytopathology examination of the uterine cervix after 10 years of participation in external quality monitoring (eQM).
Background In 2014, the Joint Croatian Working Group (JCWG) for laboratory diagnostic of chronic kidney disease (CKD) conducted a survey across medical-biochemistry laboratories which demonstrated a large heterogeneity in this area of laboratory medicine. To ensure the tools for the standardization process, in 2017 the JCWG-CKD published the first Croatian recommendations for laboratory diagnostics of CKD. To assess the implementation process, we have repeated a survey to explore how well laboratories adher...
Biofilm-forming organisms can persist on surfaces in hospital clinical laboratories and potentially lead to nosocomial infections. Therefore, effective decontamination procedures are essential for reducing infections. In this study, we investigated an alternative to often ineffective manual cleaning methods, a pulsed xenon ultraviolet (PX-UV) light device. We evaluated PX-UV effect on biofilm formation ability of pathogens and also evaluated PX-UV effectiveness on environmental bioburden in clinical laborat...
