The UPMC (https://path.upmc.edu/) study marks the first evaluation of augmented reality microscopy in cytology. The abstract was accepted to USCAP, and upgraded to a platform presentation to take place at the Moderated Poster Session on Tuesday, March 3 between 3:56 – 4:02 PM.
Augmented reality microsocpy combines digital information on top of the optical plane of the microscope eyepiece. This is performed by projecting a computer-generated digital image within the optical path of the microscope, and is different than virtual reality where specialty glasses are required to create a complete digital or computer-generated environment. By attaching Augmentiqs as an augmented reality enabler to a conventional microscope, it easily converts the microscope into a digital pathology solution that can now be utilized for real-time telepathology and computer-assisted diagnostics (e.g. image analysis, apply artificial intelligence algorithms).
In the UPMC Liron Pantanowitz Digital Pathology study, the combined Augmentiqs augmented reality module and existing light microscope was used by the lab to execute image analysis in the microscope eypiece in order to quantify Ki-67 directly from cytology glass slides while they were present on the

Augmentiqs will be present at USCAP. Visit us at booth #238 to demo our Augmented Reality Microscope, real-time telepathology, integrated QuPath image analysis and other software features that improve pathology workflow directly from the microscope.
