MED22/401: Hypertext Atlas For Pathology Education
Introduction: Macro- and microscopic pictures play the key role in the pathology diagnosis and education. Collections of annotated digital histological images are being prepared and an interface offering convenient way of dealing with high resolution images and their descriptions was developed. The atlas will be primary used in pre-graduate course of pathology at the University.
Discussion: The atlas was primary produced as a stand-alone package, stored on local disc or CD-ROM. In this form it is suitable for pre-graduate and initial postgraduate education. Currently, it is being converted into very flexible, easily available and expandable diagnostic tool available through Internet. The Internet accessible atlas may be easily updated and expanded with new images and text. Images at different compression levels could be stored, the low resolution one used to fast scan and the highest resolution images used for detailed comparison with unknown specimen. Through the very high speed network (e.g. TEN-155) it will be possible to transfer even the raw data images with resolution above3000*3000 pixels.
