Atlas of Gastrointestinal Pathology: A Pattern Based Approach to Neoplastic Biopsies
Closely mirroring the daily sign-out process, Atlas of Gastrointestinal Pathology: A Pattern Based Approach to Neoplastic Biopsies is a highly illustrated, efficient guide to accurate diagnosis. This practical reference uses a proven, pattern-based approach to clearly explain how to interpret challenging cases by highlighting red flags in the clinical chart and locating hidden clues in the slides. Useful as a daily “scope-side guide,” it features numerous clinical and educational features that help you find pertinent information, reach a correct diagnosis, and assemble a thorough and streamlined pathology report.
More than 1,600 high-quality photomicrographs capture the subtle morphologic spectrum of neoplastic processes of the tubular GI tract. Each image is captioned with key diagnostic considerations and includes call-outs showing subtle features and diagnostic clues.
Practical tools throughout the text include:
Tables that emphasize salient clinicopathologic features, management implications, and therapeutic options o Discussions of how and when to incorporate molecular tools o Checklists for key elements of the diagnostic approach and sample notes for inclusion in pathology reports
Relevant endoscopic images, photographs of select gross specimens, and medical figures
Brief reviews of normal histology that provide contrast to succeeding patterns
“Pearls and Pitfalls” and “Near Misses” sections with lessons from real life sign-out experience
“Frequently Asked Questions” sections that discuss common diagnostic dilemmas
“Sample Note” sections that offer a template of how to synthesize complicated or especially challenging topics
Quizzes in every chapter that provide experience with high-yield, board-style teaching topics
