Pathology Imaging Expert in Medical Diagnostic Systems
A pathology imaging expert was sought for a patent infringement case involving medical diagnostic systems for cervical cancer. Both parties were medical device manufacturers who specialized in oncology technology and, specifically, cancers of the cervix, breast, ovary, and prostate. The patent claims technology for a semi-automated analysis system for cervical pap smears allowing microscopic digital imaging and automated image processing technology to make the initial check for irregularities.
IMS ExpertServices provided pathology imaging experts familiar with semi-automated pathology analysis systems and microscopic digital imaging technology. Knowledge of cytopathology was considered desirable but not required.
Pathology Imaging Expert
Active in imaging systems since 1985, this pathology imaging expert specializes in signal compression and image processing as well as digital microscopy system design. One of the systems he helped develop was a cervical cancer or cytopathology screening system. Most recently, he has worked on the development of endoscopic video imaging systems and quantitative fluorescence imaging systems. He has worked in both the hardware and software sides of digital imaging. This expert holds a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering and is a registered Professional Engineer. IMS Reference #4972258
Diagnostic Imaging Expert
This diagnostic imaging expert is currently a professor at a research university where they design and build imaging systems and perform research-based imaging. He has more than 30 years experience in digital imaging. He is familiar with the pathology analysis systems used in analyzing pap smears from an imaging perspective. Since 1998, this expert has been a frequent speaker on topics of microscopy and diagnostic imaging. He has led studies on the development and direction of microscopic digital imaging technologies and instrumentation development. IMS Reference #497679
