What Is Telepathology?

Telepathology is the ability to practice pathology at a distance. It uses state-of-the-art telecommunications technology to transfer pathology images from around the world for the purposes of diagnosis, education and research. Our experts at SsahiPath use new innovations in high-resolution digital slide imaging and telepathology to provide a wide variety of individualized pathology consultation services in the sub-Saharan region. We prepare comprehensive pathology reports and work closely with our providers to offer guidance on diagnostic and prognostic findings to assist in therapeutic decision making for our patients.
