We predict that, over time, as computers gain more and more discriminatory abilities, they will reduce the amount of time it takes for a pathologist to render diagnoses and, in the process, reduce the demand for pathologists as microscopists, potentially enabling pathologists to focus more cognitive resources on higher-level diagnostic and consultative tasks (eg, integrating molecular, morphologic, and clinical information to assist in treatment and clinical management decisions for individual patients).
It is true that it is difficult for microscopists who are not familiar with the technique to become skilled at differentiating between multiflagellated protozoa and bronchial ciliated cells.
We expect this network, based on the solid collaboration between growth groups, microscopists, quantum optics experimentalists and theorists to explore the full potential of this emerging technology.
All slides were examined for malaria parasites independently by two microscopists by light microscope.
To address the inherently low contrast of biological specimens without introducing stains that can distort structures and cause other artefacts, microscopists use computational techniques to combine multiple images of identical particles.
However, the sensitivity is limited and the best methods require hours of input from skilled microscopists, and that's a problem in developing countries where malaria is most prevalent," he said.
Thanks to its new automated white balance capability, microscopists may avoid the common practice of subjectively post-processing images (i.

Then, in 1972, electron microscopists began to examine fecal specimens from patients with acute gastroenteritis, and within a decade, a collection of novel enteric viruses had been discovered: Norwalk virus (noroviruses), rotaviruses, astroviruses, enteric adenoviruses, classic human caliciviruses (sapoviruses), and others.
