Snapshot Creator work flow: Histology slides are scanned by the Hamamatsu NanoZoomer scanner (NDPI-New). A portion of the full NDPI image is converted into a lower resolution JPEG image and the ABCTB logo is embedded at the bottom of the image (JPEG Snapshot Processing). The images are linked to the database and further sliced into smaller sections of different resolutions by using Deep Zoom technology. The processed NDPI files are archived, however, processed JPEG files can be deleted to save disk space.
