The article focuses on the national external quality assurance scheme for breast screening pathology launched by the British National Breast Screening Programme. Key findings of two studies on the robotic interactive telepathology accuracy of the scheme are provided. These findings demonstrate that telepathology of the RITPath type is a clinically and technically effective modality for histopathology quality assurance schemes.
