The march of digital pathology into enterprise imaging has continued with the news that Canon Medical has partnered with Tribun Health.
The agreement will see Canon add Tribun’s digital pathology capabilities to the Japanese vendor’s enterprise imaging roadmap, enabling it to offer providers solutions across a growing number of departments, including radiology, cardiology, endoscopy and pathology. It also illustrates the growing importance of digital pathology to informatics vendors. With Canon becoming just the latest example of a large international imaging vendor to announce a deal with a digital pathology specialist, eagerly following in the footsteps of Siemens Healthineers, Fujifilm and GE HealthCare. While Fujifilm decided to acquire Inspirata and Siemens chose the partnership route with Proscia. GE HealthCare also chose the partnership route, also with Tribun, adding an interesting dynamic to Canon’s announcement.
