Wavelet-based Virtual Microscope
Wavelet-based Virtual Microscope Technology
Using our Virtual Microscope, the user is able to zoom in on a targeted area. This system allows for highly compressed images to be progressively viewed. This allows a professional to search through this image just like they would with a standard microscope, however, at any point, the user may save the image for future reference.
This project is currently being conducted by James Z. Wang's Group at The Pennsylvania State University. Wang started this work in 1997 when he was with Stanford University.
