The virtual histopathology slide box provides an introduction to the histology of diseased cells and tissues. Each specimen is accompanied by a caption that provides information on staining, magnification, and the structures shown. Virtual microscopy is provided in cooperation with Smart Zoom®. Complementary to this Learning Card, the box contains numerous images of captioned normal histological specimens with the same virtual microscopy feature. Some images from that learning card have been included here also for easy comparison.
The following slides are sorted by disease rather than organ systems.
