About this book

Introduction

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.
