Online tests using scanned sample preparations
In order to monitor and further develop the interpretation of histological staining, QuIP is working on the concept of online tests where participants are provided with a defined number of scanned sample preparations to interpret. These readout tests should give pathologists the opportunity to check their level of knowledge. Feedback to their interpretation will be provided in the form of annotations within a short timeframe.
The concept of analogous readout tests was proven successful in the Mammary Carcinoma proficiency tests. The step towards digitalization of readout tests enables individualized participation with less time constraints. A format for PD-L1 scoring will be developed first and launched in 2022. We are also planning to include parts of the Mammary Carcinoma proficiency tests, e.g. Ki-67 scoring, in the next stage of the online digital readout test.
You will be informed here and on the programme section of our website as soon as the digital readout tests are available.
The activities on digitisation in pathology are supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action for a period of three years (2020 to 2023).
