Eliminate digital roadblocks with expert consultants
Transitioning to digital pathology can be overwhelming due to concerns about cost, chaos, implementation and errors. Bypass these challenges with experts building your digital roadmap and guiding you from concept to successful implementation.
“Lumea is perfectly positioned to allow pathologists to enter into the digital pathology space. I hear pathologists say “we know we have to go digital but we just have no idea where to even start”. Lumea bridges that gap. By providing a scaleable solution for individual pathologists and/or practices.”Adam Cole, MDTruCore Pathology Founder & CSO

Yes, there is a return on investment and it can be seen in multiple facets. If you utilize certain histology and tissue technology, that investment return is typically seen within 3 months of the initial investment. If not, cost savings will be seen in the following: storage, shipping, consultations, AI analysis and efficiencies, scalability both in the lab and with pathologists, advanced analysis, physical transportation of both personnel and slides, turnaround times, streamlined and centralized and most important, improved diagnostic accuracy.

Yes! There have been many research studies on the accuracy of digital pathology compared to traditional with the result of diagnosis being consistent independent of the method. It’s important to note that the accuracy of both digital and traditional pathology largely depends on the skill, experience, and training of the pathologist. Additionally, the quality and calibration of digital equipment and the digitization process can influence the accuracy of digital pathology.

No! Lumea’s IMS handles all small surgical biopsies. The IMS also integrates with our tissue technology to create never-before-scene pathology efficiencies, which we pioneered with prostate tissue but are continually expanding into other specialties.
Like anything, change comes with a learning curve. Typical digital pathology has seen some minimal improvements, such as faster access to slides, easier consults, and additional digital tools. Lumea is invested in unleashing the full potential of digital pathology via integrated tissue technology and software to optimize pathology in ways never seen before.
What measures are in place to ensure the security and privacy of patient data, especially in compliance with US regulations?
Digital pathology can be designed with robust security measures to protect patient privacy and prevent unauthorized access in accordance with HIPAA, HITECH, and other relevant requirements. Modern encryption and authentication methods allow for secure connections, even over the internet, between web browsers and applications. Vendors should have the documentation they can provide upfront to prove compliance, but if that documentation does not satisfy your questions you should discuss it with their Information Security Officer. An important note: Your practice will be responsible for the compliance and security of the devices you use for pathology, such as securing work computers and keeping passwords safe.
