First paragraph (this article has no abstract)
The last few years have brought rapid growth in the number of Virtual Microscopes (VM) and the promotion of digital histology. In this digital era, it is natural to assist in the transportation of histology imaging into computer technology support. We have also assisted in a quick and precise race towards improved technology capable of acquiring detailed digital images which realistically report the original slide for easy consultation [1,2].
