PathCentral, Irvine, Calif, reports that the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine’s Department of Pathology, Baltimore, will participate as a client in the PathCentral Pathology Network, an online information exchange and digital consultation forum.

PathCentralbigThe PathCentral Pathology Network enables physicians to upload case files using digital images for pathologists to review and render critical consulting diagnoses on both a global and a domestic real-time basis.

In terms of scanning technology and imaging software, the Network is agnostic and designed to be nonexclusive–that is, open to all users regardless of location or consulting institution.

The Network seeks to connect the world’s pathologists, incorporating tools from social media, making it an ideal forum for pathologists to send and perform consults, create connections, post information, share cases, ask questions, and expand professional relationships.
