Digital photo imaging and telepathology is rapidly emerging as a major tool, not only in education and research, but also in diagnostic pathology. By utilizing state-of-the-art imaging equipment, I am involved in several on-going projects in this exciting new field ranging from web-based tutorials to sophisticated virtual photomicroscopy.
