An early, point-to-point telepathology system at the University of Basel developed into an open-source, Internet-based platform for telemedicine in 2001. The Internet Pathology Suite (iPath) is a Web-based telepathology platform that permits the online presentation and discussion of cases within user groups. It also allows realtime telemicroscopy across firewalls. After four years, the telepathology network has over 700 active users. More than 6,300 cases with a total of about 39,000 images have been diagnosed. The diagnostic workload of all these cases is not exclusively handled by the Department of Pathology in Basel, but by a growing number of independent groups who also use the server simply as a case repository. What started as a small project for hospitals in Switzerland has become a global network.
