Conventional optical microscopy of specimens from colorectal biopsies commonly produces diagnostic errors due to incomplete sampling or poor orientation. Obtaining additional sections or re-embedding may help avoid these errors, but can prolong turnaround time. We describe new technology, which incorporates exhaustive sectioning, 3-dimensional reconstruction, and virtual microscopy, that may eliminate these problems by enabling pathologists to rapidly examine entire specimens and convert poorly oriented mucosa to well-oriented mucosa.
