The Academy has received 3,266 abstracts, with top research destined for platform and poster sessions. Dr. Stanley Hamilton of MD Anderson Cancer Center will deliver the Maude Abbott Lecture on “The Pathologist and Individualized Cancer Therapy,” and Dr. H. Gilbert Welch of The Dartmouth Institute will discuss “Overdiagnosis and Cancer Screening: Challenges Posed by Birds, Rabbits and Turtles” for the Timely Topics lecture. The Generation U party is a celebration of our profession and USCAP’s expression of appreciation for attending the meeting.
Innovative Solutions for Automated Imaging
Since 1986 MetaSystems has been designing and manufacturing systems for computerized automated microscopic imaging. From the very beginning, the close relationship to the end user has been an essential part of the MetaSystems philosophy. The following three decades have revealed that this was a successful strategy; from humble beginnings, MetaSystems has grown into a leading solution provider which still remains connected to its strong roots.
MetaSystems’ latest innovation, Neon, is a dynamic, modern imaging platform which reliably manages cases, images, and results from single workstation environments to large multi-user, multi-site installations. The Neon imaging platform ensures that all relevant information is accessible whenever needed.
Maybe you can find a solution to your imaging automation problem here on this web site. We recommend starting your journey on the application pages, if you are not familiar with our product portfolio. In case you are, it may be easier to go directly to the page for the product you actually look for. Should you feel lost, please feel free to contact us or the MetaSystems partner in your country.
We believe in communication being the first step towards innovative solutions!
Brain Tissue Microarrays (TMA)
A TMA consists of an array of cylindrical tissue cores extracted from different paraffin-embedded tissue ‘donor’ blocks, which are subsequently punched into a ‘recipient’ paraffin block. In diagnostic applications, there has been concern as to whether 0.6 mm or 1 mm cores are accurately representative of a tissue cross-section containing heterogeneous tumour cell populations. [...], commercially available systems such as the VSlide scanner (MetaSystems) coupled with MetaMorph software (Molecular Devices) can streamline image acquisition and analysis of cores. This coupling of scanner and software enables high-throughput processing of immunolabelled TMA sections, and thus avoids the effects of inter- and intra-observer subjectivity that is intrinsic to manual microscope analysis. [...] We demonstrate the use of VSlide scanner [...] coupled with [...] image analysis software to analyse tissue microarrays in a cost effective and user friendly manner. [...] VSlide offers a customisable and user friendly tissue microarrayer tool enabling easy TMA acquisition by non-experts. [...], automated image analysis based methods provide objective, consistent and reproducible pathological assessment.
