Although much of pathology and lab medicine revolves around testing, the stages before and after the test itself cannot be ignored. Whom to test? When to test? Which tests to use? And, once a test result has been received and interpreted, how to apply that information? Now, more than ever, people are aware that pathologists and laboratory medicine professionals = testing, but it’s important to make sure patients are aware of the equally complex work that goes into decision-making on either side of the test itself.

Yours, Michael Schubert, Editor
