The review and treatment of Dermatopathology are inescapably being affected by on-going innovative progressions. We are seeing the change from glass slide microscopy to virtual microscopy, which is going about as both an exploration instrument to all the more likely illuminate us in regards to the improvement regarding visual symptomatic skill as well as an open instructive mechanism for clinical understudies, occupants, and colleagues as online data sets and chart books. The improvement of portable innovation is making it more straightforward to gain slide pictures and extending the opportunities for telephone and tablet based microscopy, remembering tele-dermatopathology preparing and interview for asset unfortunate districts without trained professionals. Applications like clearpath, which are promptly accessible on cell phones and PCs, offer an intuitive stage for DP preparing. Worldwide scale transmission of DP data and picture sharing are helped first by Web and long range interpersonal communication locales, which upholds cooperative symptomatic exploration and scholastic pursuits.

The exploration cutaneous infection states and choosing the best clinical administration for different issues rely intensely upon the investigation of dermatopathology. For both DP colleagues and dermatology and pathology inhabitants, DP instruction is a critical piece of preparing. The general measure of time dedicated to concentrating on DP inside dermatology residencies is proof of the worth of DP training and its impact on the development of specialists with the essential abilities. Beforehand, it was felt that DP educating took up around 25% of the dermatology residency program. The preparation educational plan for the 52 dermatological residency programs that answered a later survey of Association of Teacher of Dermatology individuals, nonetheless, uncovered that around 30% of it is right now dedicated to DP instruction. Capability in DP empowers dermatology occupants to foster their administration, clinical-neurotic relationship, and analytic capacities[1].

Virtual microscopy and glass slide microscopy

DP and pathology has generally depended intensely on glass slide microscopy for both symptomatic and instructive purposes. Nonetheless, later advancements in computerized picture quality have made it conceivable to utilize virtual microscopy for both DP and pathology educating simultaneously. "The product helped control of top quality computerized photos of tissue segments, to mimic the experience of inspecting glass slides under an ordinary optical magnifying lens" is the means by which VM is portrayed. The presentation of computerized whole slide imaging has made VM possible. Glass slides are carefully changed into high-goal pictures by scanners, and the essential programming simplifies it to see and explore WSI on work area cell phones and tablets. VM is right now used for tests, capability appraisals, computerized picture examination, filing, conferencing, capability testing, quality confirmation, research, distributing, intraoperative and remote counselling, notwithstanding its job in schooling and preparing. Various examinations have shown that rehearsing dermatopathologists have sensibly high finding precision while utilizing virtual DP pictures, and the US Food and medication has as of late supported the offer of the primary WSI framework for advanced pathology[2].

Iron:In medical colleges, VM is frequently used to teach pathology-related courses and modules. The attractiveness of VM comes from its focus on autonomous scholarship, problem-solving skills, and a reduction in human interaction hours from the perspective of medical education curriculum reform. From the viewpoint of the student, VM is connected to enthusiastic feedback and has been demonstrated to boost self-learning and teamwork. With regard to contrast, illumination, focus, and "ease of use," digital photos can be adjusted. Additionally, some educators have used "hotspotted" and "interactive" digital images, which have clickable "hotspots" with additional descriptors that are marked with markers on the slide.

Tracking and tutoring:In addition to being an effective teaching method, VM has the rare ability to be an essential research tool for DP and pathology education. Notably, evaluation of learning can be expanded to examine how users "interact" with digital pictures, measuring slide exploration tactics, perceptual data collection, and cognitive judgments of both novice and experienced pathologists. Histopathology is fundamentally a visual science, hence mastering visual perception, processing, and pattern recognition skills over time is necessary for accurate slide interpretation.[3].

Applications on mobile technology and DP education

There has not been a formal investigation on how technology and mobile apps are used in DP education. As was already indicated, attempts to develop digital image capture techniques have led to the employment of mounted digital cameras that capture images from the microscope and digital pathological entire slide scanners. The upfront expense of the necessary gear has been the main obstacle to the widespread use of WSI approaches, as outlined in this paper. These modalities can also be difficult to use, take a lot of time, aren't portable, and need specialised, proprietary software in addition to technical support in order to enable for the capture and storage of digital images. Medical students, residents, and doctors' learning and practise of dermatology and DP are currently being revolutionised by the introduction and fusion of camera technology with web-enabled features on handheld devices. In fact, recent research has reported on the performance traits of DP specimen diagnoses made using tablets and smartphones. Future applications of interactive virtual reality tools like the Oculus Rift could include diagnostic and instructional functions for DP and other forms of digital pathology.

Educational uses:Numerous journals of pathology and dermatology have created mobile applications so that users can access recent articles. Additionally, delegates' activities were made easier during recent national meetings of the American Academy of Dermatology thanks to mobile applications. It is not surprising that field-specific mobile applications have emerged as a result of breakthroughs in DP education and mobile technology. Pathology and dermatology are two disciplines where application development investment is booming because clinical care relies heavily on visual pattern recognition. Despite these developments, a recent survey found that pathology was just a minor emphasis of less than 1% of dermatology-related apps[4].

Microscope with mobile phone:

Smartphones are increasingly utilised to immediately acquire DP images from microscope oculars, both with and without the need of mounting adaptors, in addition to providing instant access to information. The quality of mobile camera technology, which continues to advance, is now comparable to that of its more traditional, microscope-mounted cousin or more recent WSI systems, which makes this possible. In fact, a number of authors have discovered that the quality of photographs taken with smartphones and those taken using conventional means are on par. Smart technology is also widely available, portable, and reasonably priced. Importantly, when smartphone acquired images are used as a teaching tool in pathological microscopy sessions, students have displayed better engagement, with more active involvement and improved group discussion[5].


Technology breakthroughs are transforming DP education and practise. There was a period when the only resources accessible for DP education were GSM, textbook atlases, and on-staff dermatopathologists who could provide training. VM is now being used as a supplement to DP instruction, incorporated into institutional databases of digitised slides, or further combined to create online atlases that may be interactive in character. Education efforts have been further complemented by the growth of computer and mobile applications created especially to teach students, residents, and fellows about the complexities of DP, enabling "any time, any location" access. Some of these programmes, such as MyDermPath and Clearpath, also include thorough self-assessment tools to identify knowledge gaps, adding an interactive component that is lacking in conventional textbooks. An innovative channel for the sharing of information and images related to DP and pathology is being made available by rising Internet and social networking site usage.
