Image stitching for pathological slice splices several adjacent images into an integrated seamless picture which is significant in remote medicine, especially remote diagnosis. However, because of limitations of image acquisition method, some mismatch could occur. This paper proposed a new image mosaic revising algorithms based on the relativity of adjacent images. After experimental verification, the 20 groups inaccurate pathological mosaic images were revised rapidly and accurately with error controlled within a pixel. It is proved that the algorithm is effective in revising the error matching in pathological images mosaic.
