Abstract: 

A virtual slide (VS) is a digital representation of a histopathology glass slide. A significant technological advancement in the teaching of histopathology in medical schools, virtual microscopy might prove challenging for medical schools in low-resource regions of the world. In this project, we demonstrate a collaborative approach to developing a virtual slide collection using the teaching slide collection of an institution from a developing country and making it available on the Internet.
