Abstract

An oriented service multilayer architecture for virtual microscopy in mobile devices PROCEEDINGS Open Access An oriented service multilayer architecture for virtual microscopy in mobile devices Luis Martínez1, Germán Corredor1, Marcela Iregui2, Eduardo Romero3* From 11th European Congress on Telepathology and 5th International Congress on Virtual Microscopy Venice, Italy. 6-9 June 2012 Background The Virtual Slide (VS) is the constructed tool for interac- tion with a large amount of visual information, using for doing so devices designed to display and interact with the VS, i.e., search of Regions of Interest (RoIs), labeling speci- fic RoIs in the VS, automatic VS or retrieval of certain RoIs [1]. Two main VS advantages, over a glass slide, are the information access and the data maintenance. Disad- vantages are related with the computational cost [2]. Over- all, slide storing and interaction is carried out from the same device used for display. Mobile devices are of course an extreme case of poor resources [3] and therefore clever navigation strategies are necessary to optimally interact with the VS. Related to interaction with VS from mobile devices, there are two main issues to be addressed. The former is related to the storage and access to a large quantity of data, the latter concerns the reconstruction and display of the visual information. Several works have used the JPEG2000 compression standard to address the storage needs [4][5,6]. JPEG2000 is an image compression stan- dard designed by the Joint Photographic Expert Group, based on the Discrete Wavelet Transform and the EBCOT encoder [7]. This standard provides several advantages, among others, compression efficiency, lossy and lossless compression and multidimensional data access, i.e., random and multiple resolution data repre- sentation and data organization in several quality layers [8]. Likewise, the granularity provided by the standard allows the retrieval of individual packets, guaranteeing transmission of jus
