Abstract

The objective of our study was to establish a detailed photomicrographing protocol for pathologists and dermatopathologists using standard overhead camera and image editing packages. Through a trial-and-error approach we devised a series of steps that comprise our photomicrographing protocol. Descriptive and interpretive data analyses were performed to highlight how each step improves tinctorial quality of digital photomicrographs.
