This episode of Digital Pathology Today™ our guest is Hillel Kahane, MD StarPath Diagnostics
There's so much excitement and hype around AI, but what does it mean for the practicing pathologist?
Workflows seem very fragmented and antiquated, particularly in this new era of digital pathology. Can we add value in the pre-analytic or specimen handling phase and also in the post-analytic or reporting phase?
Our guest is Hillel Kahane, MD, founder of Starpath diagnostics, a renowned and well-respected board certified uropathologist with over 28 years of experience in the commercial USA laboratory industry. He has personally signed out over 1,000,000 prostate needle biopsies throughout the USA serving well over 6,000 urologists and radiation oncologists nationwide. Dr. Kahane has served as the Chief Medical Officer & Director of Uropathology at Acupath Laboratories, Medical Director of Bostwick Laboratories, and Executive Medical Director, Uropathology DIANON Systems- LabCorp.
There seem to be many different use cases for AI. We’re going to discuss potential to enhance workflows, quality assurance application and primary diagnosis. Pathologists have long been changed to their desks and microscopes. What is the future of remote sign-out? Pathologists are very good at what they do, but how can we improve upon conventional light microscopy? And can come up more innovative ways of capturing the value we have created?
