Whole Slide Imaging adds values in 3 ways

3 facts on whole slide images

In our previous Newsletters, we have covered background and applications about Whole Slide Imaging (WSI). This post is a quick reminder of what WSI is, and here are 3 quick facts about WSI:

  1. WSI provides ease to studying slides, presentation and publication
  2. WSI enables accurate and repeatable quantification and image analyses
  3. WSI enhances data management and sharing

WSI converts histologically or immunohistochemically (IHC) stained glass slides into digital slides, as known as whole slide images (WSIs). One could perform similar tasks as she/he would with a light microscope on computer monitors. A researcher could zoom in or out of a region of interest in the office or with a laptop on the run. There is no more spending extra energy and time at searching a slide for re-capturing due to focusing issues and no more zipping images, as every corner of a tissue section is captured with crisp and sharpness on WSIs. One could take snapshots with desired magnification with embedded scale bars, and this saves time from scale calibration from images taken with conventional microscopes.

WSI opens doors of opportunity to study your experiments. Repeatable image analyses could be performed by computer algorithms in a timely manner for studying IHC slides. For analyzing histology or pathology slides, quantification such as length and area could be measured accurately on computer monitors. Furthermore, annotations on the WSIs could also be shared digitally to enhance education or conference call quality.
