SUMMARY

SURGICAL PATHOLOGY DISSECTION: AN ILLUSTRATED GUIDE fills the need for a comprehensive, fully illustrated guide to the preparation, dissection, and handling of surgical pathology tissue specimens. Arranged according to organ system, this practical manual covers the clinically important features of various specimens and lesions. The authors share their wealth of talent and experiences by providing general principles that can be employed to resolve even the most complex problems in dissection and tissue sampling. The descriptive text is enhanced by exclusive, detailed illustrations depicting proper specimen handling techniques that add a unique vitality and multidimensional effect. In addition, each chapter features a section on Important Issues to Address in Your Surgical Pathology Report and references selected for their pertinent coverage of specimen handling for each organ system. "Hruban, Westra, and Isacson, working with a superb medical illustrator (Phelps), did an admirable job in taking the Johns Hopkins' gross room manual and translating it into a practical, concise, and easily accessible guide to contemporary practice in the surgical pathology laboratory... Each specimen also contains a bulleted list of the important factors that need to be included in the surgical pathology report; this list provides clear, rational basis for most of the manipulations of the gross specimens." --Modern Pathology
