The current pathologist's workflow of manually identifying and analyzing specimens under an analog microscope has been described as inefficient, highly subjective, and generally lacking in regards to technological, and digital, intervention and integration. An Augmentiq's system paired with a fully integrate-able digital microscopy stage accessory that has X, Y, and Z mechanical movement and coordinate tracking can improve the efficiency and accuracy of this process, helping pathologists to automatically detect, quickly identify, annotate and record the precise locations of key pathologic features, areas of interest and quantifiable tumor characteristics. This accessory would also enable the pathologist to have the ability to drive the slide, while remotely viewing in real-time, on the Augmentiq's Viewer's tele-pathology software. The goal of the proposed project is to develop a mechanical microscope attachment utilizing a motorized stage, which can remotely and precisely track and move to any X, Y, Z coordinate on the specimen slide.
