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 analysis and the use of deep learning can be an important supplement to traditional methods. ICGI played a central role together with Hamamatsu when the first NanoZoomer scanner was developed. Today we use scanners from both Hamamatsu and Leica in our lab.
