Histo is also a dyeing art.  Such predictions may or may not come to pass.
It's difficult to supplant widely used methodologies that have existing
infrastructures.  Histo and cytopathology continue to flourish because they
provide such a wide range of useful information from microscopic
examinations, however imperfect and limited they may be at times.  Ask the
former employees of Neuromedical Systems, now bankrupt, who invested perhaps
7 years and tens of millions of dollars trying to get PapNet accepted how
difficult it is.

My course co-ordinator always claimed
histo was a dying art because in the future there will be no need to excise
lumps of flesh from people because illness will be detected & treated by
the new emerging technologies.
