This paper introduces the applications of image processing and JPEG2000 in pathology. Our study aims to provide pathologists valuable assistance on examining biopsy samples of prostate and support their decision. The digital color microscopic image is processed only within the regions of interest instead of overall processing. In this way, some diagnostic information is enhanced to provide better visual effect. JPEG2000 is used for the storage and interactive transmission of the large pathological images. Our simulation results show that the use of JPEG2000 can significantly save storage space without compromising the diagnostic value of the image.
