Introduction

IHE Anatomic Pathology addresses information sharing, workflow and patient care in Pathology, including anatomical pathology.

Sponsors

IHE Anatomic Pathology is sponsored by the French Association for the Development of Informatics in Pathology (ADICAP), the Spanish Health Informatics Society (SEIS), the Spanish Society of Pathology (SEAP), the French Society of Pathology (SFP). It manages the Pathology Profiles and the Pathology Technical Framework.

Objective and Scope

The aim is to extend the IHE initiative to anatomic pathology laboratories, their information, automation, imaging systems and equipments. The scope of the anatomic pathology includes surgical pathology, biopsies pathology, cytopathology, autopsies, and related techniques (immunohistochemistry, molecular pathology, etc).

Information systems in anatomic pathology laboratories gather medical data (text, images, etc) throughout specimen management from specimen reception to report editing. The diagnostic process in anatomical pathology (figure 1) differs from that in the clinical laboratory since it relies on image interpretation. It also differs from that in radiology since it is specimen-driven and when digital imaging is performed many types of imaging equipments (gross imaging, microscopic still imaging, whole slide imaging, multispectral imaging, etc) may be involved for a single examination. Moreover, images of the same study may be related to different specimen (parts and/or slides) from one or even different patients (e.g Tissue Micro Array). Finally, slides are always available to acquire more images, if needed. In radiology, the diagnostic process is patient-driven, an examination (study) usually involves a single image acquisition modality and all images of the study are related to one and only one patient.

Current Anatomic Pathology Profiles (in Final Text and Trial Implementation)

  • The new releases of the Anatomic Patholgy Technical Framework (PAT TF) and supplement(s) for trial implementation are available on the ihe.net web site :[1]
  • The new supplement(s)for public comment are available on the ihe.net web site :[2]
