Fastweb collaborates in telepathology via broadband project

Thursday 31 October 2013 | 16:47 CET | News
Italian broadband operator Fastweb and Cloud Pathology Group have carried out Italy's first digital telepathology via broadband project at Busto Arsizio, Saranno and Tradate hospitals in Lombardy. Although digitalisation of slides is historically the preserve of research and documentation departments in Italian hospitals, it could shortly become a routine diagnostic process. The project involved making high-resolution scans of diagnostic slides and transmitting the files and related metadata to a remote Cloud Pathology data centre via point-to-point fibre channels provided by Fastweb.
