Whole-slide digital imaging is the process by which digital images of entire histologic slides are created by highresolution scanning of the slide. Digital imaging vendors may use slightly different technologies to produce these digital images, but most vendors use a tiling system, in which multiple individual high-resolution images are acquired as tiles, or a line-scanning system that creates linear scans of tissue areas. Both methods require the tiles and line scans to be stitched together and smoothened to create a single digital image of the histologic section.
