Dr. Sylvia Asa: UHN lab expert stars at TEDx
In February 2014, Dr. Sylvia Asa, Medical Director of UHN's Laboratory Medicine Program (LMP), addressed the question, "How can we harness innovation to transform medical diagnostics?" at a TEDx event.
In her talk, Asa spoke about why her team is looking at new and innovative ways to ensure that:
every patient has the right diagnosis
clinicians understand their patients' prognosis
pathologists predict the right treatment for each patient
"We've been innovative to provide a much better pathology service for our patients. We're not going to stop there . . . our vision is that pathology really is the heart of a patient's diagnosis."
