Virasoft’s workshop series “Neuropathology with Prof. Tihan” reaches 18th webinar

More than 100 neuropathology cases have been discussed on the Virasoft platform with hundreds of pathologists, pathology trainees and medical students

NEW YORK, April 24, 2023 – Since 2020, Virasoft has been organizing a monthly webinar series of neuropathology coordinated by Tarik Tihan, MD, PhD, and the Turkish Neuropathology Working Group of the Turkish Pathology Federation. The series are being moderated by Virasoft co-CEO Samet Ayalti, and Prof. Tihan discusses selected neuropathology cases and diagnostic challenges. Participants also bring along difficult cases from their practices for consultation and the cases are resolved collectively. The meetings are held on the Zoom platform and the pathology cases are reviewed on the virtual microscopy platform provided by Virasoft. Participation is open to all pathologists and pathology trainees in Turkey and is announced on the Pathology Federation's website. Average participation is 50 pathologists and there has been more than 18 sessions since the inaugural session in 2020.


Prof. Tihan mentioned that since 2020, more than 100 neuropathology cases have been discussed on the Virasoft platform with hundreds of pathologists, pathology trainees and medical students. He also suggested that these webinar sessions have contributed to the professional development of numerous young pathologists and help develop their knowledge and diagnostic skills. The participation of the Neuropathology Working Group and the Federation of Turkish Pathology Societies and Anatolian Pathology Societies also allowed many experts from various universities contribute to the webinars and help solve the difficult cases presented by the participants.


Mr Ayalti emphasized that Virasoft is planning to expand the series which was originally started in Turkish, globally.
