Digital pathology is a dynamic image-based environment that acquires, manages, and interprets pathology information generated from digital slides. When a scanning device is used to capture a slide, a digital slide is created to provide a high-resolution image that can be viewed on a computer screen or mobile device. Its healthcare applications include primary diagnosis, clinical research, intraoperative diagnosis, diagnostic consultation, training of medical students, diagnostic decision support etc. Whereas in life science, the applications include quantitative analysis of slide images, high throughput glass slide scanning, instant online consultation with professional pathologists, and secure archiving of pathology data. At present, it is one of the most promising fields in diagnostic medicine for achieving accurate and speedier diagnosis, increasing productivity and better treatment decisions and reducing laboratory costs. Increasing prevalence of chronic conditions is expected to surge clinical urgency for adopting quicker and reliable diagnostic techniques, stimulating the growth of global digital pathology market. Additionally, rising geriatric population with higher tendency of chronic disease susceptibility is fostering the demand for digital pathology technologies. As per National Council on Aging (NCOA), around 80% of the older adults have at least one chronic disease in U.S. out of which 68.4% of the Medicare beneficiaries consists of two or more chronic diseases whereas 36.4% have four or more. However, the expensive digital system integration in pathology is the major factor restraining the global market growth.
