The Virtual Slide Congress of Pathology

The first Internet Virtual Slide Congress is an opportunity to exchange experiences and share best practices in the use of virtual slides in Pathology.

Instead of using representative fields, Pathology cases will be presented capturing and storing the entire slide. Visitors are provided with navigation tools to move around a slide, and changing powers as desired. This approach has been termed virtual microscopy, and we are convinced it will become a most valuable continuing medical education tool.
