SUNNYVALE and VISTA, Calif., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- IMPAC Medical Systems, Inc. (IMPAC), an Elekta company and leading provider of information technology solutions for anatomic pathology (AP) laboratories, and Aperio Technologies, (Aperio) a global leader in digital pathology for the healthcare and life sciences industry, announce the development of an interface between PowerPath(R), IMPAC's AP laboratory information system (LIS), and Spectrum(TM), Aperio's digital pathology information management system. The interface, now in development at both companies, is designed to optimize workflow and facilitate access of digital slide images and case data between the two systems.

"Interfacing with PowerPath addresses the demands expressed by many of our customers regarding the seamless integration of our Spectrum image management (PACS) software, which includes the ability to run our FDA-cleared IHC solutions, with a leading LIS," says Dirk Soenksen, CEO of Aperio. "We are very pleased to be working with IMPAC in delivering an integrated solution to the pathology laboratory."

"It is clear that whole slide scanning and the viewing, analysis and management of digital slide images are important developments in anatomic pathology, and we recognize these represent the beginning of a new era in process flow and data management," says George Rugg, SVP and General Manager of IMPAC's LIS business unit. "As a leading provider of anatomic pathology LIS solutions, IMPAC is excited to be working with Aperio to provide this solution to the AP community. It reinforces our commitment to integrate proven new technologies with PowerPath."

Demonstrations and full details regarding the PowerPath-Spectrum interface will be available at the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathologists (USCAP) meeting in Denver, Colorado, March 3-5. For additional information, visit IMPAC Medical Systems at booth # 612 or Aperio at booth # 122.
