February 2017 Issue of The Pathologist

Welcome to our February issue. After the success of its inaugural appearance, we’re presenting another new Case of the Month… are your diagnostic capabilities up to snuff? Our Upfront articles cover improved metrics for NAFLD prediction, and why screening for herpes in asymptomatic individuals may not be the best course of action. Patrick Myles writes an In My View article suggesting that pathologists take a look outside biomedicine for digital inspiration. Our Feature looks at the ethics of genomic data collection – and learning to deal with both its benefits and complexities. In Practice explains the importance of standardized diagnostics, NextGen covers the secrets of cellular senescence, and Profession focuses on humanitarian initiatives in pathology. We Sit Down With Jerad Gardner, social media aficionado and Assistant Professor of Pathology at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.
