After the pap test, the most popular cytological exam in the world is urinalysis. In fact, urinary cytology represents a significantly increasing diagnostic reality, second only to cervico-vaginal cytology.
The lack of standardized indications that regulate the reporting phase in the urinary field, however, increases the confusion around this type of examination.
The standard of reporting in this area is provided by TPS (The Paris System), a working group that has devised a standardized reporting system that includes specific diagnostic categories and cytomorphological criteria for a reliable diagnosis of high-grade urothelial carcinoma. However, this reporting system, which follows the guidelines of The Paris System, is not yet very widespread.
The Congress of Urinary Cytology organized by the Auxological Institute of Milan has the specific objective of providing appropriate updates on The Paris System, born with the intention of creating a common and detailed line in urinary cytological reporting.
WorldConnex as a company active in the field of new technologies in medicine and partner of important projects in this area, has enthusiastically welcomed the opportunity to support the Auxological Institute in this project: this collaboration aims to offer sector operators innovative technologies and skills and effective for a better diagnostic approach.

"... but didn't you make computer systems?"
Yes, but #COVID19 has redefined priorities, partnerships and needs and we at WorldConnex are not backing down.
Yesterday we spent the day in laboratory with our partner Hospitex International Srl, Prof. Stefano Martinotti by Università degli Studi 'Gabriele d'Annunzio' di Chieti in a joint venture with Dr. Paolo Fazii, director of Microbiology Dept. of Pescara Hospital, for the scientific validation of a new COVID19 diagnostic system.
A rapid and reliable molecular test, with a simpler and less invasive method of sample collection than the usual nasopharyngeal swab.

On November 16, 2019, 1 year ago, the Department of Pathological Anatomy of the Omar Hassan Al Bachir military hospital in Djibouti was inaugurated, at the presence of the State highest officials and the Gibutian Armed Forces.
The laboratory, built in just 18 months, is the result of an intense period of joint design and implementation that sees the hospital's Health Department among its protagonists in the figures of the Director General Col. Madian and Dr. Miriam Martinelli for the project management, APOF NGO for consulting on health process design and training of local staff, WorldConnex for the WaidX Telepathology platform and Digital Health components.
The result is exciting: the new Diagnostics Department employs laboratory technicians from the hospital and makes use of the remote consultation of Italian pathologists who are connected in real time thanks to WaidX, achieving a reduction in the cost per exam of 90% and a cut in the average time for obtaining the diagnosis from 3 months to few days compared to the previous method of carrying out pathological diagnoses.
In the video presentation, the new Health Department of the Hospital wanted to emphasize the importance of the project which represents a vanguard in the telemedicine sector for developing countries.

It is a kind of tradition for WorldConnex presenting the updates of our WaidX telemedicine projects at WorldCancerDay, the annual event promoted by UICC.
As usual, last February 4th WorldConnex attended this important event.
One of our aims thanks to WaidX has always been to bridge the technological gap in Telemedicine between countries with different levels of development. So, we played on this aspect to customize the reference theme for WCD 2020 in "I am WaidX and I Will close the Gap in Telemedicine".
