IMSTAR is pleased to announce that it has successfully demonstrated the capabilities of its upcoming Telepathology E-Mage product during a live session conducted between Paris (France) and Montreal (Canada).

A pathology slide with a tissue section sample was placed under a fully motorized microscope at IMSTAR development center in Paris (France). An operator in Montreal (Canada) was able to control, in real-time, the motions of the microscope, in order to select and observe various regions of interest on the slide. The operator was also able to control brightness and focus of the microscope, as well as select the proper objective lens. The picture below is a screen capture of the operator’s screen during the demonstration. The small window at the right top of the picture shows the microscope set-up in Paris. The main E-Mage window shows the portion of the slide viewed by the operator. The screen capture also shows the functions available to the operator to remotely control, in real-time, the microscope.

At any time distant operator may also switch to be connected to a macro stand equipped with HR camera nearby the microscope to view a tissue macroscopic specimen.
