Abstract

Human performance studies were performed to evaluate the video microscopy component of a proposed dynamic telepathology system. Frozen sections from breast biopsies of 115 patients were evaluated by both conventional light microscopy and video microscopy by 6 pathologists. Receiver operator characteristic (ROC) curve studies showed nearly identical levels of discrimination between benign and malignant breast lesions for both viewing modalities. Viewing times were significantly greater (p < 0.001) for video microscopy but within a time frame that rendered the technology of potential value for pathology diagnostic applications. Large degrees of interobserver viewing time variability were found for light and video microscopy.
