APPLICATION OF MOBILE PHONE-BASED PORTABLE MICROSCOPY IN CLINICAL HISTOPATHOLOGY: A FEASIBILITY STUDY

Waliullah A S M

Abstract


Objectives: To check the feasibility of using mobile phone-based microscopy for various types of human histopathological sample investigations. Methodology: A feasibility study was performed by imaging several histopathological samples with one novel type of microscope “Foldscope” and image compared with a conventional microscope in the laboratory facility. The image acquired from both sources were edited further and put together for comparison. Results: Mobile phone- based microscope acquired images were observed and compared with a conventional microscope and found morphology of the tissue sections were significantly similar as of conventional light microscope images. Conclusion: By comparing the image of some non-human histopathological sample, it could be stated that this method is also feasible for human histopathological sample investigations, especially in the low resource area or in case of emergency situations.

Keywords: Mobile phone-based microscopy; Histopathology; Microscopy; Imaging.
