Pathology Images Now Viewed on Apple iPhone

January 7, 2009 - The Institute for Medical Informatics, Rikshospitalet, Oslo University Hospital, announces it has developed a remote application for review of pathology images for the Apple iPhone.

The application allows for a remote pathologist to review and navigate high quality images of diagnostic quality using either the cellular network or WIFI networks on the iPhone. Using the application rapid specialist referrals can be made, without access to a computer, a microscope or the original specimen. According to the Institute, the image can be reviewed by the pathologist and used to provide a diagnosis used in cancer and other disease treatments.

The system has a generic high-quality microscope slide scanner, a server where the images are located and the iPhone. The iPhone is used to access the large image that is stored in the server, but only to retrieve relevant parts. The iPhone interface allows the user to navigate and view images of interest in a similar way to that provided by Google Earth.
