Many enlightened histologists have already started to opt out.
Use cases for digital pathology are vast and include: primary diagnosis including faster access to immunohistochemistry (IHC) and special stains, remote frozen section diagnosis, remote rapid assessments on radiology directed biopsies, consultations or second opinions from within the practice, backup coverage for subspecialty pathologists, secondary consultations from outside experts, in-sourcing of consultations from other countries, education and training of histologists, medical students and pathology residents, validation and verification of new stains, peer review, tumor boards, quantitative analysis of biomarkers such as estrogen and progesterone receptors, and research applications, including clinical trials.
Six H-E stained testis sections for each rat were evaluated by two histologists in a blind manner for histopathological alterations in interstitial spaces (edema, vascular congestion, inflammation, and Leydig cell damage) and STs (tubular basal membrane damage, spermatogenetic and Sertoli cell damages, MNGC presence, and tubular lumen changes).
Basophilic is a technical term used by cytologists and histologists that describes the microscopic appearance of cells and tissues, after they are stained with a basic dye such as the crystal violet dye used to stain bacteria or hematoxylin used for tissues, and corresponds to a dark blue or purple stain (basic/positive).
The slides thus obtained were analyzed by two independent histologists. They were photographed using an Olympus[R] C-5050 digital camera connected to an Olympus[R] BX-50 microscope and QuickPHOTO Pro software.
However, even as newer tests affect the industry histologists stress the benefits of tissue diagnosis as vital in the practice of personalised medicine and the precision of staining must be exact for accuracy in treatment.
Morphologists (anatomists, histologists, cell biologists, electron microscopists, pathologists and others) have for some time been using and developing quantitative approaches that have made it possible to estimate the regular composition of various organs and tissues, as well as to verify how external agents or diseases can modify the structure.
Finally, all Serbian histologists active today, are disciples of professor Kostic, as they all have studied histology from the last edition of his great textbook of histology in 1980s.
All of cellular hyperplasia, goblet cell hypertrophy and degeneration, leukocytic infiltration, ciliary loss and degeneration, edema, and vascular dilatation were evaluated by two histologists blinded to group status.
