A method of analyzing images of stained slides on a remote client computer connected to a wide area network such as the Internet includes the steps of scanning a stained slide to produce a digital image file of the stained slide and storing the digital image at a first location. An image viewer and analysis program is executed on a client computer in a location remote from the first location. A stored digital image from the first location is transferred to the client computer. A user selects a field from the stored digital image using the image and analysis viewer program. The field is then scored either manually or automatically. A user may also score a section of a field. Multiple fields and/or sections may be scored to achieve an overall score for the slide. A hardcopy report may be generated based on the scoring.
