Viewing slides digitally gives numerous advantages that glass slides do not provide; for example, tumors and areas suspicious for disease can be measured more precisely; images can be manipulated and utilized for consultation and teaching purposes; images can be viewed by more than 100 people simultaneously from anywhere in the world; and automated, quantifying algorithms for estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors, and HER2 have since been developed and FDA-cleared, reports Joon Yim, MD, director of digital pathology at Acupath Laboratories.
The study was conducted using clinical data with so-called "triple-negative" breast cancer, a form of the disease that is not responsive to therapies targeting estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors, or the HER2 receptor.
