The implementation of digital pathology with quantitative image analysis will create a new workflow allowing the pathologists to focus on the fundamental task while alleviating tedious and repetitive work. The paradigm shift creates new roles:
Operators ensure the proper and timely virtualization of slides followed by the initiation of automated image analysis algorithms. The quantified results are then available and validated by the expert Reviewer. Designers are free to fabricate new or existing algorithms to answer novel research questions and interrogate tissue deeper.
