Importance of colour management in digital pathology

We are applying our print colour management expertise to the global standardisation of digital pathology image capture and display.

We are founder members of the International Color Consortium Medical Image Working Group and are involved in a number of collaborative research projects that will deliver relevant data and solutions to the standardisation projects.

For instance, within the printing industry our RealPro ColourCloud provides a web based colour profiling toolkit that enables standardisation of colour through application of ICC profiles across the entire workflow.

We are now exploring ways of using cloud based technologies to provide a similar solution in digital pathology.
