Introduction of iPath at the Department of Pathology, Tikur Anbessa Hospital, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

The iPath system for training and consultation in making diagnoses for pediatric cancer cases has begun at the Department of Pathology, Tikur Anbessa Hospital. Dr Nina Hurwitz of INCTR’s Pathology Program has been collaborating with the Department of Pathology in order to implement iPath for this purpose. The first case was reviewed and led to detailed discussions – demonstrating that it is useful both for consultation and training. The detailed discussions that accompanied the review revealed ways in which current methodologies for making accurate diagnoses at the hospital can be improved and led to the identification of strategies to add new diagnostic methodologies.
