Virtual microscopy

Virtual Microscopy (VM) is based on digitalized pathology specimens (images of cell and tissue preparations). VM allows for the possibilities to view, navigate, distribute, and assess over LAN and the internet. Digitalizing of tissue together with other digital techniques opens for new and more objective methods within diagnostic research and routine.


VM will be able to reveal new diagnostic parameters. Quantitative histology is based on VM and image segmenting can be an important supplement to traditional methods. We have in cooperation with Hamamatsu developed NanoZoomer which is our hardware platform for VM. Currently, a number of different scanners are available on the market.
