First paragraph (this article has no abstract)

The today’ s technologies allow an easy way to share information relevant to image by means of different tools. Many solutions are today available that allow to the cytologist to exchange digitalized information about glasses. It is thus arising the need of objective methodologies, such as the ones based on HTA that we have proposed in a previous study focused in tele-pathology [1], to investigate the potentialities of the new technologies in D-CYT. It should be also considered that the D-CYT will have a great impact in the work organization as the interaction with the glasses is radically changing [2] giving also new chances to e-learning [3-5].
