Welcome to the Society for Hematopathology website. Through this site, we hope to inform our members and interested visitors of the activities of the Society, provide graphically enriched educational resources produced by our members, and serve as a guide to the many valuable resources hidden within the Internet maze.

  • Letters from the President

  • Membership application

  • Educational resources

  • Society Case of the Quarter sets

    The Society for Hematopathology produces quarterly case studies of interesting hematopathologic lesions, accompanied by photomicrographs and other graphic materials. These have been converted to hypertext format for WWW display.

    (Beware: Tech talk: The photomicrographic images are currently displayed in relatively low resolution JPEG format, in an effort to minimize transmission time. These provide fair image quality on standard computer monitors, but are of insufficient resolution for printing or conversion to slides.

  • Useful software

  • Browser plug-in programs
  • These free programs enhance the performance of your browser software by allowing the viewing of specialized programs within your browser. These include multimedia, movies, sound, three dimensional images, etc. They must be downloaded from central sites or the individual producer, and stored in a "plug-in" folder usually installed by your browser. The plug-ins are usually platform specific, requiring different versions for Macintosh versus DOS versus UNIX.

  • Netscape plug-in file
    Plug-in programs are organized by function, and linked to their download sites. Recommended:
    Multimedia: versions of Adobe Acrobat reader, Envoy Reader, Shockwave viewers, Futuresplash
    Sound: Real Audio, Crescendo
    Video viewer: Modzilla for the Mac, Coolfusion for Windows/DOS
    Wavelet image compression: LightningStrike, Summus
