Whole slide imaging/images (WSI) offers promising new perspectives for digital pathology. We launched an initiative in the anatomic pathology (AP) domain of integrating the healthcare enterprise (IHE) to define standards-based informatics transactions for integrating AP information and WSI. The IHE integration and content profiles developed as a result of this initiative successfully support the basic image acquisition and reporting processes in AP laboratories and provide a standard solution for sharing or exchanging structured AP reports in which observations can be explicitly bound to WSI or to regions of interest (ROI) in images.
