Study Informations


Histology practical is taught in a special equipment room at Theoretical Departments Building (TDB) of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry (new building, room n. 2.540) with capacity of 30 students. All working benches are equipped with binocular microscopes for observation of classical glass histology slides and personal computers (PCs) with monitors for observation of virtual (digital) histology slides. All student’s PCs are connected to local intranet network with a server running a database of virtual slides for practical sessions. Attached are also supporting documents for practical sessions, teaching presentations, electron micrographs and schematic animations. In the course of two semesters, students are tested for their practical and basic theoretical knowledge of histology with the use of PC-delivered, image-based tests in MCQ formats, with immediate evaluation of results.

Students can study virtual slides also in their own time on PCs available at premises of the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry intranet environment, or on their own PCs connected via public internet to NIS (Net Image Server, Olympus) database of virtual slides. A guide to connection to NIS is available for download here (pdf).

Introduction of teaching Histology practical with virtual slides was supported by ESF-OPVK grant n. CZ.1.07/2.2.00/28.0089 in years 2012-2014.
