Abstract

Advances in video microscopy, computer sciences, and robotic light microscopy have allowed the development of static and dynamic electronic imaging in pathology. As in other image-oriented medical specialties, including radiology, these developments herald the development of the fully digital laboratory in the future. Resolution specifications for pathology video systems are discussed. The use of color is examined. Dynamic and static imaging equipment is reviewed, and the large number of images that would be required to digitize and store an entire case electronically is documented by two clinical examples. Image storage and transport requirements and video-signal format options are discussed. An integrated physician's workstation is envisioned.
