Telepathology is the use of telecommunications technologies in the practice of anatomic or surgical pathology. In the usual telepathology scenario, a remotely located pathologist views images of tissues samples in order to render a diagnosis of the biopsy. Numbers of medical institutes are increasing rapidly because of health awareness & financial attractions. Pathology labs, being backbone of hospitals are integral part of medical education. Shortage of pathologists & high cost of usual labs are of great concern. The model of Telepathology labs is designed for School of Medicine, University Malaysia Sabah to overcome such situation. In the first section, Teleconsultation & Telereferral (Tele-consolation) leading to telediagnosis are defined for pathology & the classification of Tele-pathology Labs (TelePol) by using internet technology is established. In the second section the current literature on telepathology is reviewed and analyzed. The third section is concerned with the better understanding of static & dynamic telepathology. Finally, the role of TelePol in medical tele-education & followed by conclusions are given. © 2009 ACM.
