Artificial intelligence can augment global pathology initiatives – Authors' reply
Pathology (East Africa)
We read with interest the correspondence from Junaid Nabi, which suggests that use of artificial intelligence (AI) along with telepathology can provide temporary, scalable solutions to improve access to pathology services, until requisite financing schemes are implemented by developing countries. Although AI will play some role in diagnosis in the future, we believe that solutions of this type could actually detract attention from proven, basic investments that are necessary to provide access to pathology and laboratory medicine services in low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs).
