“The Histolog Scanner offers great potential for immediate margin analysis of specimen in breast conserving therapy.”

A recently published article¹ in the peer-reviewed ‘Diagnostic Pathology’ journal concludes that the Histolog™ Scanner provides a reliable on-site method to visualize morphological details equivalent to the H&E standards, permitting rapid and accurate differentiation of malignant and benign breast lesions by physicians.

42 Histolog Scanner images of 24 human breast biopsies were evaluated by two independent pathologists in comparison with the corresponding H&E histological slides. 95% of overall accuracy was obtained: 76 correct correspondences over a total of 80 evaluations (41 evaluations emitted with high confidence and 35 evaluations with lower confidence).

Study was conducted by Dr Christoph Tausch at the ‘Brust Zentrum Zurich’, largest breast center in Switzerland.
