From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Digital Pathology is an image-based information environment enabled by computer technology that allows for the management of information generated from a digital slide. Digital pathology is enabled in part by virtual microscopy, which is the practice of converting glass slides into digital slides that can be viewed, managed, and analyzed.


Digital Pathology Environment


Digital slides are created from glass slides using a scanning device.


Digital slides are accessible for viewing via a computer monitor and viewing software.


Digital slides are maintained in an information management system that allows for archival and intelligent retrieval.


Image analysis tools are used to derive objective quantification measures from digital slides.


Digital pathology workflow is integrated into the institution's overall operational environment

Sharing Digital pathology also allows internet information sharing for education, diagnostics, publication and research.
