In the last few years, telepathology has benefited from the progress in the technology of image digitalization and transmission through the world web. The applications of telepathology and virtual imaging are more current in research and morphology teaching. In surgical pathology daily practice, this technology still has limits and is more often used for case consultation. In the present review, we intend to discuss its applications and challenges for pathologists and scientists. Much of the limitations of virtual imaging for the surgical pathologist reside in the capacity of storage of images, which so far has hindered the more widespread use of this technology. Overcoming this major drawback may revolutionize the surgical pathologist's activity and slide storing.
