Histopathology became an established, global and accepted clinical discipline in the first half of the 20th Century. Since then 3 main developments have reshaped the way we practice it.
Immunohistochemistry (IHC)  provided important information in both diagnostic and discovery, helping the delivery of a more accurate and sophisticated taxonomy of diseases (diagnostic value), and also the performance of key tests with a genetic, prognostic and predictive value . The second revolution (“the molecular diagnostic revolution”) was different and, in many occasions, this analysis has been performed outside the routine pathological strategies, making pathologists facilitators rather
In our opinion, Digital Pathology (DP) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) represents an incipient “third revolution” that is strongly knocking at the door of pathology. From a practical point of view, DP/AI have the potential to make the complex and fragmented pathway of routine pathological tissue interrogation a more seamless
This lecture will discuss in detail our contributions to the application of DP in
