EurAsia Academy on Digital Pathology

Digital pathology (DP) and artificial intelligence (AI) have revolutionized the field of pathology. Although growing interest in DP & AI has been observed recently, there is still a reluctance to adopt this technology in routine clinical practice. Further, there is a need to harmonize this technology globally and bridge the knowledge gaps to get acquainted with the nuances of DP & AI. To this aim, we are pleased to announce the first-ever edition of the EurAsia Academy on Digital Pathology, an online event that will take place on October 10, 2023.
