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.
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".

At World Cancer Congress 2018, one of the most relevant global events against cancer organized by UICC (Union for International Cancer Control), WorldConnex presented the latest milestones reached by WaidX.
A special thanks goes to our project partners, who enriched the presentations with their enlightening contributions:

WorldConnex takes part in the World Cancer Day with the launch of two important projects.
Why World Cancer Day is important?
This year alone, nearly 8 million people will die of cancer, and left unchecked, the number of deaths will increase to 13.2 million per year by 2030. There is an urgent need for action to raise awareness of the disease and to develop practical strategies to reduce the burden of cancer.
With the recent adoption of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), global health is entering a new era. Today, more than ever, a global commitment is needed to advance progress in the fight against cancer and non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
World Cancer Day is the perfect opportunity to spread the word and create a global awareness of the disease in international media and global health and development programmes.
How does WorldConnex contribute to the cause?
At World Cancer Day 2018, WorldConnex participates with two important projects, made possible by WaidX®, the telematic platform destined to define new scenarios for telemedicine. In both cases, the main objective is to provide access to medical care and channels that allow the exchange of know-how between doctors and health personnel in real time.
