Duke Virtual Slide Collection

We have not yet put together a complete index of the Duke slide collection, but that is in the works. For now, you may use the links below to at least browse the collections of Bacus-formatted and Aperio-formatted digital slides directly on the servers.

University of Michigan Slide Collection

Below is an index of slides from the University of Michigan Histology collection compiled by Dr. Kent Christensen, Ph.D., J. Matthew Velkey, Ph.D., Lloyd M. Stoolman, M.D., Laura Hessler, and Diedra Mosley-Brower. The ImageScope links requires a Windows machine running ImageScope (click here to get it for free from Aperio).

The Michigan slide collection also has pathology slides as well as collections from LSU, Drexel, UCSF, and UIowa. Click here to browse the Michigan virtual slide server.
