A study was conducted to explore the feasibility of usage of foldscope, for diagnostic accuracy, in comparison to conventional microscopy. The biopsy (95) samples were analyzed by foldscope revealed 21 epithelial tumors that included squamous cell carcinoma (n=6), malignant melanoma (n=4), adenocarcinoma (n=4), mixed mammary tumor (n=2), hepatoid gland adenoma (n=2) and one each of acanthomatous papilloma, basal cell carcinoma and papilloma. It was found that foldscope matched up to 20X magnification of conventional microscopy. The present study reveals significant promise in the outreach of expert opinion from any laboratory in the world, to any area where interpretation by expert is not available.
