Telepathology is the most recent addition to the diagnostic armory of the Pathologist. In spite of its relative limitations, as compared to Dynamic Telepathology, Static Telepathology has been widely accepted as a low-cost diagnostic and consultation tool, especially in those remote areas where expert opinions or second opinions on histopathology, cytopathology or haematopathology are not readily available to the reporting pathologist. For an accurate Telepathology performance, optimal quality of images is required. Knowledgeable use of available hardware and software have made it possible to produce high quality images, making Static Telepathology a reliable diagnostic tool.
