Informatics is the management of information. Pathologists, unfortunately, mostly have poor tools for this job.

Software in use at pathology departments

Information systems

Dictation

Content management

Biobanking management

  • Centraxx.

Image analysis

  • Cytomine - under an Apache license.[1][2]

Pathology wikis

  • Wiki use for the dissemination of pathology knowledge is increasing.
  • In the general sphere, Wikipedia is dominating and will probably continue to do so.[3]

Open source

Open source in pathology appears to be some way off. One opinion paper[4] addresses this issue.

The radiologists are more on the ball here, e.g. UCLA's OpenSourcePACS.[5]

A few institutions (mostly American) are coming to understand this and have formed the Open Digital Pathology Consortium (opendp.org). There is also an open slide project (openslide.org).

QPath is a open source software platform for whole slide image analysis.[6]

Cytomine is a web-based open source image processing and analysis software.

ASAP is an open-source whole-slide image viewer.

Ilastik - interactive learning and segmentation toolkit is an open source tool to perform segmentation and classification of images. Cureently it does not support full virtual slides.[7]

Whole-Slide Images

  • Most common formats:
   **Philips (.tiff)
   **Aperio (.svs, .tif)
   **Hamamatsu (.vms, .vmu, .ndpi)
   **Leica (.scn)
   **Sakura (.svslide)
   **MIRAX (.mrxs)
   **Ventana (.bif, .tif)
   **Generic tiled TIFF (.tif)

SlideJ is a plugin for ImageJ for viewing most of the above mentioned formats.[8]

  • There is a push for an open virtual slide format.
  • A free C library exists to read whole-slide images.[9]

Health informatics directory

  • The University of Freiburg put together a list in 2010.[10]
