With the global shortage of cytologists and pathologists, the lab industry is exploring how to harness artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to not only save time and money but improve the accuracy of screening and diagnostics and better predict prognosis and treatment response. In this issue, we bring you expert insights into these emerging technologies.
In our Technology feature, we delve into the role of AI in diagnostics and highlight the ADLM Disruptive Technology Award finalists, while our Histology feature discusses new AI-based decision support tools and advances in 3D imaging-based computational pathology.
Similarly, Today's Clinical Lab speaks with Michael Quick, vice president of R&D and Innovation at Hologic, about the benefits of using AI-enabled digital cytology to expand access to cervical cancer screening worldwide.
“Failure to protect patient data against unauthorized access or misuse violates patients’ right to privacy and can result in legal consequences and damage to your lab's reputation,” writes Morgana Moretti, PhD, in our Automation & Informatics feature. Moretti outlines best practices for safeguarding sensitive patient data.
