According to Cancer Research UK, over 350,000 people are diagnosed with cancer in the UK each year. It has also been found that up to three times as many people will survive cancer if diagnosed early...

In 2017, Hamamatsu Photonics supplied the national Cancer Vanguard programme with four whole slide imaging scanners for use in the Cellular Digital Pathology (CDP) project. The aim of the project was to win the ‘Hearts and Minds’ of the pathology community by demonstrating how digital pathology, if integrated in the future, will add value both in terms of improvement of clinical outcomes and patient care.

Hamamatsu Photonics’ supplied a range of their NanoZoomer digital slide scanners including the S60, S210 and XR and these were placed in four institutions across Greater Manchester. They became part of an end-to-end service, capable of safely scanning, storing and the reporting of 1,471 cases, including cases with more than one specimen. In total 2,028 specimens were reviewed and validated.

The conclusion of the project was that the pathologists stated that the solution worked. Increased workloads could be partly managed by improving slide flow across pathology departments using digital pathology as an enabler, facilitating a more collaborative and flexible regional working environment.

The full report will be available in the near future.
