DFD Information Services

DFD Information Services Inc. hopes to do for pathologists what teleradiology companies are doing for radiologists. That is, it hopes to offer a way to capture images of microscope slides digitally and transmit them to far-flung locations within and outside of hospitals. The images could be used in conferences, reports, physicians offices, and other non-hospital sites. Pathology informatics has been slow to catch on, because of the quality of images and expense, but DFD hopes to change that. It is also setting up an Internet-based patient information service called Information therapy, which provides customized information to physicians and patients based on a patient's pathology report.
