Denmark Leads the World in Highest Cancer Rates

Yesterday, February 4th, was World Cancer Day and the WCRF International issued this excellent infographic on some insightful statistics around cancer.  Visiopharm is headquartered in Denmark, the country with the highest cancer rates in the world.

In Denmark, the healthcare system and pathology departments face major challenges. These include too few experienced pathologists, a growing volume of diagnostic tests, demands to reduce turnaround times, and overall costs of pathology.  Over the last thirteen years, Visiopharm has worked closely with leading Danish and International cancer researchers and pathologists to develop diagnostic software capable of improving and standardizing diagnostic reading, while automating key steps in the diagnostic workflow. Our software is now being deployed at central pathology labs across Denmark. Read more about this initiative and how danish pathologists are embracing new standards in cancer diagnostics on a national scale.

There is a pressing need to improve and standardize the diagnostic work on cancer in order to optimize patient care.  The team at Visiopharm is working hard each and every day to make a difference in the research, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer.  Not only in Denmark, but all over the world.
