MacroPATH pro-x, Macro digital imaging system for the grossing room
The visual description of surgically excised specimens together with the sampling site forms an important component in the documentation of a patient's case. The accuracy of the description depends on the vocabulary and on the descriptive process of the Pathologist or Pathologists’ Assistant The transcription of dictation also takes time and can involve additional services external to the pathology group. Since 1999, Milestone has pioneered the use of macro digital imaging systems to document the grossing procedures. Our technology has enabled laboratories to implement better quality assurance oversight, reduce specimen description time, and provide greater accuracy.
The new MacroPATH pro-x is a user-friendly, high-resolution image capture system that can either be mounted to fit any existing grossing workstation or used as a shared stand-alone resource. Selected high-resolution images can be used to supplement synoptic or preformatted reports that provide essential data of clinical relevance. The stored images form a powerful database for QA, teaching and research. Connection to remote transmission facilities allows teleconferencing and telepathology consultations.
The MacroPATH pro-x assures an improved productivity and workflow for the grossing room. Quality is secured and images are optimized. The software is user friendly and icon-driven for very easy operations. In addition to stand-alone operations, MacroPATH pro-x can interface with a PACS or LIS through a coded solution or TWAIN mode and can be installed in any existing workstations.
