Department of Pathology
Digitalisation of pathology opens enormous opportunities for AI
The Department of Pathology at Odense University Hospital provides state-of-the-art diagnostic services within all fields of anatomical and surgical pathology as well as cytology and molecular pathology.
Cancer diagnostics with comprehensive tissue biobanking is one of the main tasks in the department which also works with inflammatory and degenerative diseases.
The department has recently moved from studying tissue samples in traditional microscopes to using digital images of the tissue samples. This has opened enormous opportunities for the application of AI algorithms, e.g. as automatic image analysis as part of the diagnosis.
