Histopathology Specimens: Clinical, Pathological and Laboratory Aspects 2nd ed
“As an overall guide to histopathological specimens, this is an excellent text. The strength of the book lies in the concise summary of information and excellent diagrams. It has a role in the reporting room library for day-to-day work. It is also useful as a personal reference book for those preparing for examinations as it covers all types of specimen, some of which we may not have encountered in our rotations.” (Kirsty Lloyd, Bulletin of the Royal College of Pathologists, Issue 171, July, 2015)
From the Back Cover
Covering anatomical, clinical, pathological and laboratory aspects of surgical histopathology specimens, Histopathology Specimens: Clinical, Pathological and Laboratory Aspects, Second Edition relates specimen dissection and its clinical context to relevant histopathology reports, and therefore a more comprehensive patient prognosis and management is possible.
Histopathology Specimens: Clinical, Pathological and Laboratory Aspects, Second Edition explains pathological and clinical terminology, including a glossary of clinical request form abbreviations. A standardised step-wise approach to specimen handling is illustrated with simple line diagrams and highlights essentials of the histopathology report, relating them to appropriate specimen dissection. The integrated multidisciplinary team approach taken to the modern clinical management of patients is reflected by correlating patient presentation, diagnostic and staging investigations with histopathology specimens. Current WHO and TNM tumor classifications are referenced.
Histopathology Specimens: Clinical, Pathological and Laboratory Aspects, Second Edition will be of educative value and act as a reference tool for the medical undergraduate student, medical trainee in histopathology and the biomedical scientist, and as a useful aide memoire for the histopathology consultant.
