Normal Overview Image Sometimes, it can be difficult to precisely select a region for scanning from the overview image due to the size of the computer screen, size of the tissue sample, image quality, or any combination of these.


When viewing the overview image, you may zoom and pan the image to better assist you in selecting the tissue or region to scan.

Use Mouse Scroll Wheel to Zoom Into Overview Image To Zoom Into the Overview Image...

To zoom into the overview image, position your mouse over the image and use the scroll wheel on the mouse to zoom in or out.

As you zoom into the image, the uScope Navigator application attempts to constrain the image so that the point under the mouse cursor remains fixed while the image zooms around it.

Zooming into the overview image does not increase the resolution. It merely makes the pixels larger and somewhat easier to see. The more you zoom in, the more the image gets blurry as the pixels of the image are enlarged.
