HC Deb 19 May 2003 vol 405 cc601-2W
Chris Grayling

To ask the Secretary of State for Health where the scanned image of biopsies is in use. [111025]

Mr. Hutton

The Department of Health does not collect this information centrally. As part of its Pathology Modernisation Programme, the Department is funding a pilot project, based at Leeds Teaching Hospitals National Health Service Trust, to evaluate the use of digital scanning technology in histopathology. The project will run from 2003–04 to 2005–06.
