Histopathological examination is a powerful method for prognosis of major diseases such as breast cancer. Analysis of medical images largely remains the work of human experts. Current virtual microscope systems are mainly an emulation of real microscopes with annotation and some image analysis capabilities. However, the lack of effective knowledge management prevents such systems from being computeraided prognosis platforms. The cognitive virtual microscopic framework, through an extended
