Cayuga Med Offering Real-Time Analysis of Lab Testing When Needed


Patients of Cayuga Health can now receive real-time analysis of laboratory tests including biopsies when needed. 

This will result in quicker diagnosis, peace of mind and improved quality of care. Cayuga Medical Center received approval from the State Department of Health to use a new digital slide scanning process to enable this improvement. The novel technology, validated at CMC, is only available in a few hospitals in New York. 

The high resolution, provided by the scanners, allows for getting a close-up look over any device without sacrificing the quality of the image. In cases where timelines are critical, slides are scanned at bedside or in the lab and stored digitally, where a pathologist can review securely from any location using a tablet or desktop.
