Background: The variety and complexity of dermatologic diseases in Afghanistan and the associated diagnostic resource constraints have not been previously studied. Moreover, the utility of store-and-forward teledermatopathology in this resource-limited setting has not been investigated. Methods: A retrospective analysis was conducted of 150 store-and-forward teledermatopathology cases that were composed of a clinical history, clinical images, and histologic images that were sent from an academic teaching hospital in Kabul to a dermatology-trained dermatopathologist at Emory University in the United States between November 2013 and June 2017...

International telecytology can improve patient care by increasing access to regional and international expertise in cytopathology. The majority of international telecytology studies published to date have been based on static telepathology platforms. Overall concordance rates for these studies ranged from 71% to 93%. This is comparable to the concordance rates published for other studies comparing diagnoses made by digital still images to reference glass slides, which vary from 80% to 95%. Static telepathology systems are relatively cheap and easy to use, and have the potential to increase access to international experts in developing countries with limited resources...

Frozen section telepathology interpretation experience has been largely limited to practices with locations significantly distant from one another with sporadic need for frozen section diagnosis. In 2010 we established a real-time non-robotic telepathology system in a very active cancer center for daily frozen section service. Herein, we evaluate its accuracy compared to direct microscopic interpretation performed in the main hospital by the same faculty and its cost-efficiency over a 1-year period. From 643 (1416 parts) cases requiring intraoperative consultation, 333 cases (690 parts) were examined by telepathology and 310 cases (726 parts) by direct microscopy...

Insufficient awareness of the centrality of pathology and laboratory medicine (PALM) to a functioning health-care system at policy and governmental level, with the resultant inadequate investment, has meant that efforts to enhance PALM in low-income and middle-income countries have been local, fragmented, and mostly unsustainable. Responding to the four major barriers in PALM service delivery that were identified in the first paper of this Series (workforce, infrastructure, education and training, and quality assurance), this second paper identifies potential solutions that can be applied in low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs)...

Oral cancer is the most common type of cancer among men in India and other countries in South Asia. Late diagnosis contributes significantly to this mortality, highlighting the need for effective and specific point-of-care diagnostic tools. The same regions with high prevalence of oral cancer have seen extensive growth in mobile phone infrastructure, which enables widespread access to telemedicine services. In this work, we describe the evaluation of an automated tablet-based mobile microscope as an adjunct for telemedicine-based oral cancer screening in India...

The use of minimally invasive procedures for diagnosis and treatment decisions means that very often cytological samples are the only material available for testing. Cytology has evolved from a strictly morphological approach to the routine use of immunohistochemistry. The advent of personalized medicine has increased the demand for molecular testing, making rapid on-site evaluation even more relevant. This article presents current rapid on-site evaluation practice patterns in different settings, with a special focus on the variety of professionals involved...

In the past decade, digital pathology and whole-slide imaging (WSI) have been gaining momentum with the proliferation of digital scanners from different manufacturers. The literature reports significant advantages associated with the adoption of digital images in pathology, namely, improvements in diagnostic accuracy and better support for telepathology. Moreover, it also offers new clinical and research applications. However, numerous barriers have been slowing the adoption of WSI, among which the most important are performance issues associated with storage and distribution of huge volumes of data, and lack of interoperability with other hospital information systems, most notably Picture Archive and Communications Systems (PACS) based on the DICOM standard...
