Paper Abstract

This paper presents a performance evaluation of a digital telepathology system. In telepathology, several operations are involved in displaying source images from a remote microscope on the screen of a local workstation. At the remote site, images from a microscope are acquired by a camera and frame grabber, compressed, stored, and transferred to the local site. At the local site they are stored, decompressed, displayed, and diagnosed by collaborating pathologists. In this paper, we present the evaluation of a Roche Imaging Systems telepathology workstation.
