She is a well respected leader in using digital pathology and artificial intelligence to improve the quality of patient care in practicing pathology. Dr. Bui is a strong advocate for pathology, pathologists and laboratory professionals. The Healing Art of Pathology, a brain child of her, is dedicated to pathologists, medical laboratory professionals, patients, their families, clinicians and art lovers. This is the first art book focused on the discipline of pathology and the people behind the microscope supporting fellow clinicians in patient care.
