The Virtual Slide Congress of Pathology

The second 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.

During the first week of the Congress, we will be adding new cases.

Developed with the support of FISCAM (Grants CCM, reference # BR-CCM-2006-03)

You can also participate in the 9th Virtual Hispano-American Congress of Pathology

Organized by

Hospital General de Ciudad Real       
The ISA Group of the ETSI Industriales of the University of Castilla La Mancha (UCLM), Spain, has developed a viewer for pathology digital slides. See prototype (user: cvirtual; passw: cvirtual))
