December 2019 Issue of The Pathologist

In December’s issue, we take a trip into the gross room and hear from two pathologist’s assistants who have mastered this unique art. Cory Nash explores how gross examination underpins all diagnoses from tissue samples and shares his worries for the future of the skill. Jesse McCoy then describes the Grossing Guidelines and unpicks how they broaden inter-professional relationships in anatomic pathology. In addition, read about the search for factors implicated in pleural mesothelioma carcinogenesis, discover the future of virtual and augmented reality in medicine, and learn how MALDI MSI-based tissue typing is moving from the research lab into clinical pathology. We also sit down with Jim Lanier, retired pathologist of 33 years at Providence Hospital, Anchorage, USA.
