January 2017 Issue of The Pathologist

Welcome to our January issue. We’re introducing a new Case of the Month segment, where you get to test your diagnostic skills. Our Upfront articles delve into the diagnostic capabilities of camel urine, Raman spectroscopy’s ability in identifying IBD, and a simple solution to screening for endometrial cancer. In My View weighs up the real cost of NGS, and whether you can use it more cost-effectively. Our Feature celebrates the similarities between pathologists across the ocean – how different is pathology carried out on either side of the Atlantic? In Practice focuses on importance of computer scientists, NextGen covers CRISPRs counterparts, and Profession explores pathology in war-torn countries. We Sit Down With Chair of the Department of Imaging & Pathology Tania Roskams.
