Solution/reference architecture developed in collaboration with Dell EMC to enable scanning, storing, indexing and retrieving of whole slide images at scale.
St. Jacobs, ON, November 5, 2018 – Huron Digital Pathology today announced it will accelerate the deployment of digital pathology workflows in hospitals and research/educational facilities. Leveraging the strength of Dell EMC’s IT infrastructure products, which are compatible with Huron’s current and future whole slide scanning hardware and artificial intelligence-powered image search software, a reference architecture has been co-developed that includes:
- Huron’s award-winning TissueScope whole slide scanners, which are deployed at many of the world’s leading hospitals, laboratories and research facilities.
- Huron’s emerging whole slide image search platform, which is designed to quickly and easily index large existing and emerging datasets for fast and accurate image search.
- Dell EMC Isilon Scale-Out Network Attached Storage (NAS), the industry’s #1 family of scale-out network-attached storage systems, which stores, manages and protects unstructured data.
- Dell EMC PowerEdge servers to accelerate the indexing of large whole slide image datasets for fast image retrieval.
“In teaming up with Dell EMC and developing the reference architecture, we are shining the spotlight on the increasingly significant role IT professionals are playing in the future of digital pathology,” said Patrick Myles, CEO of Huron Digital Pathology. “Being able to combine best-in-class scanning hardware, innovative AI-powered image search software with robust and scalable storage and computing hardware helps to democratize digital pathology for the benefit of all.”
“Empowering hospitals and research facilities with cutting-edge solutions not only advances the field of pathology but can make a big difference in individual patients lives,” said David Dimond, Chief Innovation Officer, Healthcare, Dell EMC. “Leveraging the strength of Dell EMC’s IT infrastructure products together with Huron to improve digital pathology workflows has resulted in something I think is a truly powerful solution.”
