Poster Information
Abstract: Biobanks are a novel application field for digital pathology. The Brussels Free University (VUB) and its teaching hospital UZ Brussel, together with the Belgian Diabetes Registry have developed one of the world’s largest biobanks in the domain of type 1 diabetes. It contains >100.000 blood/DNA samples from patients with type 1 diabetes and their family members in addition to > 4.000 tissue samples from both diabetic and normal pancreas. A digital histopathology platform was deployed to facilitate access to the tissue collection and promote basic and clinical research.
Summary: An online histopathology platform combines tissue samples and online digital histopathology images. We combine detailed online patient data with whole slide images. This allows potential users of the tissue bank material to select the tissue and patient characteristics before entering into a collaborative agreement. The digital histopathology platform also allows different pathology laboratories in Belgium to discuss histopathological slides, and facilitates research collaboration.Report abuse »
