Abstract:

The research reported here involves upgrading the technology of the two telepathology workstations TSS previously built under this grant and the design and fabrication of the more compact PC Microscope PCM. The TSS are being retrofitted to incorporate a diode array with a seven micrometer spacing. Enhancements have been made to the system software to simplify the user interface. The Luke Mayo 1996 Telepathology Study concluded that the TSS does permit full specimen, full color imaging that can be displayed on the computer screen, successfully transmitted for remote consultation by ISDN, and conveniently archived for future reference Virtual Microscopy. For the PCM 1 The PCI Stepper Motor Control Printed Circuit Board has been designed and is being fabricated. 2 Electronic imaging hardware has been designed and developed. 3 Two test enclosures for the video camera have been designed, developed and fabricated. 4 Fabrication drawings for and initial testing of the optical and mechanical systems have been completed. 5 The software logic and interface necessary for each of the user modes have been implemented. An extension of time is requested to complete all TSS retrofits, complete the PCM, and establish solid experiments using the TSS and the PCM. No additional funds are required.
