Whole slide imaging (WSI), which refers to scanning traditional glass slides to create digital slides, is the most current imaging modality used by pathology departments globally. Whole slide imaging (WSI) marks a paradigm change in pathology, paving the way for the plethora of digital technologies to join the field. Its primary function is to digitize glass slides, but its impact on pathology workflows, reproducibility, educational material dissemination, service expansion to underserved areas, and interinstitutional and interinstitutional collaboration exemplifies a significant innovative movement with far-reaching effects.
WSI is gaining popularity among pathologists for diagnostic, instructional, and research applications. And to highlight the value of whole slide imaging, the Digital Pathology Association is running a video contest for individuals interested in digital pathology. All you have to do is submit a video that explains why digital pathology has made a difference in your practice. The DPA is not seeking a hard-core research poster presentation. Instead, they’d want to hear about people’s everyday lives. How has digital pathology benefited you? What changes have you made to improve patient care? At Pathology Visions 2021, the finest videos will be shown.
In 2009, the Digital Pathology Association (DPA) was established. The DPA is a non-profit organization made up of pathologists, scientists, technicians, and industry leaders devoted to the advancement of digital pathology. The organization aims to promote awareness, education, and acceptance of digital pathology and artificial intelligence (AI) applications in healthcare and life sciences. Members are encouraged to discuss best practices and promote the use of technology among colleagues to show efficiency, information sharing, and the overall advantages to patient care. Digital pathology is currently acknowledged as a tried-and-true technique. It gives new tools that can deliver faster, higher quality, and more accurate diagnoses, which are critical for achieving the type of results that patients and clinicians expect.

Who is Eligible?
All interested individuals who can relate to digital pathology are eligible. Keep in mind that the video you submit should be no more than 2 minutes long.
How to Apply?
To apply, you need to complete and submit the form available on the DPA website and also upload your video file. You will receive an email confirmation if your submission was successful. Make something of your own. Show your lab and scanner, for example, conduct an interview with your team and share your personal experience.
Video Script Consideration
- Tell about yourself, including your name, title (pathologist, medical director, imaging technician, etc.), and present job.
- Use video of yourself and your laboratory to demonstrate where the scanning occurs.
- Tell about your experience using digital pathology.
- What piqued your interest in digital pathology?
- What effect does it have on you and patient care?
- What are your long-term goals?
What could be better than your video highlighting the advantages of whole slide imaging? In addition, your video will be shown at Pathology Visions 2021.
The deadline for application is July 31, 2021. Please send it as soon as possible.
