The Potential of Digital Microscopy in Breast Pathology


The rapidly evolving field of digital microscopy supports the efficient exploitation of inherent information from stained glass slides to offer widespread utilization in breast histopathology. Digital image signals can be accurately measured, integrated into databases and shared through computer networks. Therefore, digital microscopy can boost telepathology-consultation, gradual- and postgradual teaching, proficiency testing, intra- and interlaboratory validation of biomarker screening interpretation, and automated image analysis of biomarker expression for both diagnostics and research applications. This is a brief highlight of the potential of digital microscopy in breast pathology applications.
