First paragraph (this article has no abstract)
Fifth generation telepathology systems are dual-modality systems (i.e., digital pathology systems) that combine whole slide imaging (WSI) and real-time dynamic robotic telepathology. Hybrid robotic dynamic/static image telepathology systems were the precursors of fifth generation telepathology systems and can be used as surrogates for fifth generation systems in workflow studies [1-4].
