Next-generation technologies

Impact on the work load of the pathologist

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Technologies emerging and evolving in the 1990s, particularly in molecular biology, therapeutics, computerization, and information management, will alter the type of work and work load of the pathologist. In general, new technologies will increase the work load of pathologists. However, the extent to which new medical technologies affect pathology will be modulated by socioeconomic factors, given the relationship between new technology and increased medical costs. Pathologists may choose to embrace many new technologies and should play an active role in technology assessment to ensure the appropriate use of new diagnostic procedures.
