As more pathologists pursue sub-specialties, demand for remote examinations and secondary opinions increase. The SL5 dual-mode instrument is capable of providing traditional microscopic evaluation of the original glass slide specimen by a remotely located specialist.
A benefit of these collaborative examinations is the educational experience afforded by the sub-specialty expert reading the slide in the virtual presence of the referring pathologist. This educational component is lacking from the traditional review in which slides are sent in the mail.
Mikroscan allows me to instantly view frozen sections from anywhere. It isn’t necessary to travel to the hospital to evaluate a specimen; I can do it real time from my office, or wherever I happen to be.
