More than a free desktop-based viewer: a complete virtual slide starter kit!

Do you want to read whole slide images (WSI) or other digital microscopic images from your hard disk or local computer? PMA.start can do the job.

PMA.start is our free windows desktop application that allows you not only to view your digital images on your own computer, but also process them in image analysis software like ImageJ. In addition, we provide an API and SDKs for Python, PHP, and Java.

PMA.start also includes a free dicomizer tool, with which you can convert your existing WSI data to DICOM.
