Figure 2: High level flow diagram of pathologists' computer assisted diagnosis (pCAD). After a specimen is accessioned, the pCAD system reviews the specimen information from the Anatomic Pathology Laboratory Information System (APLIS) in order to classify the specimen into one or more predetermined templates (e.g., sentinel lymph node biopsy, benign supracervical hysterectomy, etc.). Once a template workflow has been selected, the pCAD assimilates both APLIS data and whole slide images. In the context of predefined work tasks, clinically relevant regions of interests (ROIs) are identified and triaged. Together, a pathologist and pCAD review the ROIs interactively; as they work through the case, a pathology report is automatically constructed by pCAD. When the case work is completed, the pathologist reviews the pathology report then releases it
