Dear Users The main internet line of the iPath-Server hosting has been disrupted last Wednesday. The reason was a broken fiber cable. Finally, the ISP has been able to repair the broken cable and the iPath-Network is now back online. Please note, that since last Wednesday, iPath could not receive nor send any emails.

„dear users, we startet a new group called „histopathology forum - pilot“. The purpose of this group is to give young pathologists the possibility to comment cases anonymously, so that they gain experience in tele consulting. The cases are copies from cases in other groups, therefore they all already received a comment from a experienced teleconsultant. The diagnosis of the consultant will be revealed when enough comments are written regarding the case. Everybody is invited to use this group for training purposes.“

Due to the recently dicovered Heartbleed Bug we have patched this server to the latest versions of OpenSSL and re-keyed the SSL certificate.

2014-04-23
The iPath team wishes everyone a healthy and prosperous New Year 2014
2014-01-04
Finally the new SSL certificate has arrived and has been installed. The site should now again be properly accessible over secure http (SSL encryption).
2013-06-05
Dear user, the SSL Certificate of this website has expired today. Unfortunately, there have been some delays with the purchase of the certificate renewal so that you will receive a security warning when accessing the site. However, it is perfectly safe to simply ignore the warning. The new certificate will be installed as soon as available.

Dear users, today we have launched the Portuguese translated version of iPath. We thank Robert Timm for the translation, and hope, that the use of iPath for our Spanish-and Portuguese-speaking user will be easier.

Dear Moderators, the "move" function to move cases from one group to another should finally be working again.
2013-03-18
Dear User

On the new server there was a missing configuration to allow upload of large amount of images. This has now been restored to the same setting as before. Image upload should be fully operational again.
2013-02-05
Dear users ... Finally the iPath data hass been migrated to our new server. It seems that now all functions are working again.
2013-02-04
The server on which iPath is running at the moment is slowly coming to age. Basys Data has thus purchased a brand new Server which is installed and ready to take over the hosting of the iPath-Network. We are planning to perform this migration on Monday, Feb 4. We will try to keep the time for migration as short as possible but there might be short service interruptions.

should there be any questions, please contact us at info@ipath-network.com
2013-01-30
Please send all cases to the new email address ipathmail@ipath-network.com

The old email address of University of Basel (ipath@unibas.ch) is still valid, but will no be continued.
2013-01-08
Dear users, we would like to inform you about a few new technical developments on the iPath platform

  1. comment types: When submitting comments on cases there is now an additional option to specify the type of comment. At present the following types are available: comment, follow-up and Final diagnosis. With the option of specifying "follow up" comments, we follow the wish of consultants who want to know more about the condition of the patients.
  2. moving cases from one group to another: group moderators can now find a new button "move" in the toolbar. This new option allows moderators to move cases from one group to another.
  3. video upload: we are working on a video upload module wich will convert uploaded videos into a streamable format that allowed viewing the videos directly from the web platform. The module is not yet generally available, but if any group is interested in testing, please contact us.
2012-04-18
Dear Users, as many of you may have noticed, there was a problem with processing email alerts over the weekend. Finally we have found the cause of the problem and fixed it. iPath is now busily delivering the email alters. Please note that due to the server load there are normally up to 1000 emails processed every day.

Due to the high load of emails sent today, the iPath server has been blocked for delivery of email to yahoo addresses. We have notified yahoo and hope that the problem will soon be settled. Currently there are about 1400 email alerts from today waiting for delivery to yahoo email addresses.

we would like to apoligize for all inconveniences caused by this problem. Kind Regards
2011-08-09
FInally, the SSL Service and email import and automatic sending of notifications have been restored on this new server.
2011-07-18
Dear User

After a hardware failure, our old server provider was unable to restore the server into an acceptable state. Thus we have decided to temporarily host all iPath services on our own servers. However, it had been necessary to restore all data from the last backup from July 13th 2011. Additionally, mail services and SSL login (https) is not yet activated on the new server. These services will be configured within the next few days. The rest of the system should be operational. Should you observe any problems, please inform us (Monika Hubler or Kurt Brauchli)
2011-07-18
Dear user of the Histopathology - and Cytopathology Forum. We need more consultants which are willing to help with their diagnosis in a virtual Institute in future. To have a win win situation,  many groups in developing countries would be very thankful, if you could give something back from the benefit you've got the last years. If you can imagine, being part of such an institution please contact me Monika Hubler

Šiandien pradeda veikla nauja grupė "Patologija studentams", skirta VU medicinos studentų patologijos dalyko studijoms. Taip pat sukurta nauja tarptautinė grupė "Prostatic pathology forum". Kviečiame prisijungti.

2006 07 14 diskusijų grupėje pradėta publikuoti VU patologų tobulinimo kursų medžiaga. Jau galite susipažinti su seminaro "Plaučių nenavikinė patologija" atvejais (autorius dr.E.Žurauskas). Kursų dalyviai iki kursų pradžios 2006 09 04 gali savarankiškai studijuoti patologijos atvejus, rašyti savo diagnozes. Atvejai bus aptarti kursų metu ir tuomet atvejai bus papildyti galutinėmis diagnozėmis, imunohistocheminių metodų nuotraukomis ir paskaitų konspektais. Ateityje planuojama ir toliau diegti DISTANCINIO mokymo patologijoje metodą, kas palengvintų organizuoti tobulinimo procesą patologams neišvykstant iš darbo vietų 10-12 darbo dienų.

iPath puslapio valdymas buvo "sulietuvintas", siekiant palengvinti darbą vartotojams. Žinoma, jei Jūs siekiate išorinės konsultacijos, rekomenduotina naudoti anglų kalbą.
