If you leave the microscope behind, would you ever go back?

Not many would. In a survey of 52 pathologists, 100% of them said that going digital helps reach diagnostic consensus and that they would never go back to non-digital.1 With our pathology slide scanners, the Image Management System (IMS) and a comprehensive set of software tools and capabilities, you can easily connect with supporting sub-specialists around the world on the quest for quick and confident diagnostic decisions that enhance patient care.
