Abstract

Despite speculation that Telemicroscopy and Digital Microscopy will follow the same diffusion curves as their counterparts in the world of Radiology - Teleradiology and Filmless Radiology, no study has offered definitive evidence in support of this hypothesis. To address this gap in the informatics knowledge base, dual survey instruments were created to measure current opinions on both technologies among Pathologists and Radiologists and disseminated to Pathologists and Radiologists at two major academic medical centers.
