4 May 06 History JGS and AJR use robotic microscopy to demonstrate that frozen sections can be reliably reported using telepathology-2000 At same time DH and colleagues in Edinburgh develop digital image capture to facilitate MDT BG and colleagues in Glasgow develop MDT utilising videoconferencing and incorporating Telepathology and Teleradiology

5 May 06 History STAF invite bids for Telemedicine projects Decision that 3 bids be unified and a Pan-Scotland Telepathology strategy be developed and implemented February 2002 proceed to develop unified scheme but technology is changing and financial constraints dictate a move away from the concept of real time robotic microscopy
