Flow Cytometry Case Archive


The clinical pathology residents at the Brigham have developed a growing collection of teaching files for flow cytometry. We recently began digitizing the materials and serving them in house on a webserver.

This system, as opposed to the Visible Human site, uses javascripts to run the image/annotation interface. Javascript has an advantage over CGI in that it runs locally on the user's machine. Unfortunately Javascript lacks the graphical tools found in Perl (or Java). Furthermore, most people don't want to take the time to learn and write javascripts. To help simplify the process I created a collection of perl tools that generate images from a starting image and imagemap, and also write the javascript. Some fruits of the process are shown below.
