E-mage™, a product for Telepathology
E-mage™ is dedicated to extemporaneous cytopathology and is designed for a simple utilisation, integrated in routine task schemes. An expert is able to make a diagnosis whatever its location, simply opening the software when a diagnosis is needed. It offers many ways to fulfill users needs. It enables instant, distant, safe interpretation as well as to record virtual slides on which diagnosis has been made with traceability.
Our system is composed of different hardware and software components allowing a distant control of slide scanning and distant exploration of slides:
- A macro bench with an high resolution optic enables to switch quickly from a global view of a sample to a zoom defined on an area of interest. This zone of interest is defined by a distant pathologist to guide a local technician
- A motorised microscope station operated by a distant physician enables instant observation at any magnification of slides and can additionnaly generate high resolution virtual slides. A global overview of all captured field through a browser offers a ergonomic interface to detect, label and record zones of interest.
- Storage of all the images-data in a database under a confidential coding format, compliant with hospital networks environments.
- Compliant with solutions such as Web conferencing CISCO WebEx and Case Conferencing Orange.
One product, two setups
The human assistant only places the slide(s) to be analysed on the microscope stage and oils them when necessary.
