Pathology technology at a crossroads

The CEO of Pathology Technology Australia, Dean Whiting spoke with Australian Health Journal about the following:

– Pathology Technology Australia’s key priorities in the coming years
– Current local capability in pathology technology compared to other countries
– How the health system supports change and adoption of pathology technology
– How pathology is perceived by the public and in government as well as how developments in pathology technology are followed and understood
