Dr. Mauricio Postigo Mac Dowall from Peru was facing a problem. Their hospital routinely discusses pathology cases with the University of Minnesota. However, they aren't able to look at the patient sample slides in real time while talking on the video chat. The can only discuss images that were taken ahead of time. The interaction was limited and frustrating.
Earlier this year we donated LabCam to many universities in South America including Dr. Dowall's Universidad Católica de Santa María. Ever since the two hospitals have been showing each other pathology slices in real-time while video chatting. This has greatly increased the efficiency of collaboration between them. We have many examples like this in hospitals in Mexico, or even within the US. Some hospitals will have LabCam equipped to send images to the cytologist who is on-call for faster image transmission and real-time video chat consultation.
We are hoping that we will be able to help in transforming how pathology and telemedicine are done in the future.

You may not be working in the harsh conditions she did, but the LabCam iPhone adapter makes capturing and sharing microscope images easy and precise.
