HOUSTON, Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Aptia Systems Inc. announced today it will demonstrate DigitalScope™, an innovative web-based extremely high resolution image viewing technology at the Innovation Conference and Showcase in Houston, Texas.  The College of American Pathologists (CAP), the leading organization of board-certified pathologists, is using DigitalScope™ to enhance proficiency testing and education in the practice of pathology and laboratory medicine.

"We've developed a system that allows the viewing of very large images, into the giga-pixel range, over the internet, using only a web browser," said Royce Heslep, president of Aptia Systems. "This greatly reduces the cost and complexity of doing proficiency testing in the practice of pathology.  We've also developed a robust backend system for managing the slides, allowing administrators to markup and annotate slides for testing and grading.  We are now exploring other industries with our partner where this technology may be useful, such as nanotechnology, electronics, oil and gas exploration, training, and education."
