Evolution of the Total Test Approach to Tissue Based Pathological Analysis

  • 169 Accesses

Abstract

In Part I, the historical events were reviewed whereby, almost two centuries ago, advances in manufacturing technology of microscopes and in tissue preparation methods were adopted by a number of visionary practitioners in medicine and surgery, who in effect became the first tissue pathologists (Taylor 2011; Jones and Gal 2016). ‘Histopathology’ or ‘surgical pathology’ came into being as a separate discipline and rapidly evolved to become the ‘Gold Standard’ for diagnosis of cancer, and a guide for subsequent therapeutic decisions.
