Title: IMAGE PROCESSING SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR DISPLAYING MULTIPLE IMAGES OF A BIOLOGICAL SPECIMEN
Abstract:
A system and method of displaying of multiple simultaneous views of a same region of a biological tissue sample. Logical instructions are executed by a processor to perform operations such as receiving a plurality of images of the biological tissue sample, converting the plurality of images to a common reference frame based on the individual metadata of each image, and arranging the plurality of images into a display pattern for simultaneous viewing of different aspects of the imaged biological tissue sample on a display screen. The plurality of images is produced by preprocessing images of the biological tissue sample. Each image shows a view mode of a same region of the biological tissue sample, and each image contains metadata that describe spatial orientation, such as the translation, rotation, and magnification, of the image to bring the plurality of images to a common view.
