Tenerife (MMD Newswire) March 31, 2011 -- Room4 announces that the Interpath the multiplatform virtual slide application was demonstrated on the iPad2 during a lecture at the CATAI/UNESCO meeting on iPhone & 4G Mobile Phones in Telemedicine, just days after the release of the new iPad.
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/iPad. Using the system rapid specialist referrals can be made, without access to a computer, a microscope or the original specimen. The image can be reviewed by the pathologist and used to provide a diagnosis used in cancer and other disease treatments.
The system which has been developed in collaboration with the Institute for Medical Informatics, IMI (Oslo) was first released in 2009 for the iPhone. It now supports fall versions of the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad (Apple, US). The system allows for efficient mobile referrals using mobile devices and employs an efficient client server model, supporting many file formats in use for virtual microscopy.
