Digital pathology, or ePathology, is a virtual platform for analyzing and sharing tissue specimens. The technology involves scanning and recreating a digital version of glass slides allowing for viewing, quantitative analysis, and real-time conferencing on virtual slides without the need for a microscope. The slides can be viewed and shared remotely, wherever an internet connection is available. 

The sessions will feature information about digital pathology given by representatives from Aperio, a company specializing in digital slide scanning systems and related image software.  Complimentary slide scanning will be offered during the demonstrations for individuals interested in viewing specific prepared slides (limit two slides per person; please bring stained slides to the demonstration).  

Sessions will last approximately one hour and will have specific themes such as research, diagnostic, and teaching applications in order to provide tailored information to varied audiences at UD and regional partner institutions. All sessions are open to UD researchers, regional partners and the public.
