Description

This highly practical guide helps pathology professionals quickly and accurately describe surgical and autopsy specimens as they perform gross dissection. It helps clinicians and medical students interpret pathology reports easily and exactly. Gross Pathology Handbook provides a comprehensive list of 166 gross descriptive terms paired with images of gross specimens. Each listing includes a brief commentary describing the gross appearance, the underlying disease process and commonly affected tissues.

Christopher Horn and Dr. Christopher Naugler lay the framework for a standardized method of description, resulting in easier interpretation of reports by clinicians and improved communication among healthcare providers. This edition includes a cross-referenced index and lay-flat binding for easy use in the lab.

Introduction
W h y t h i s g u i d e ? Asmedicalprofessionals(ChristopherHornisapathologistsassistant, Christopher Naugler is a general pathologist and family physician), we have often wanted a resource with a comprehensive list of gross-descriptive terms and examples of gross specimens. WeFigured such a resource would help not only us, it would help other professionals as well: it could, for example, help standardize gross-descriptive terminology and make pathology reports more succinct. Wecouldntndaresourcelikethis,sowecreatedthisguide.Thisguidepairsacomprehensivelistofgross-dissectionterms with photographic examples of gross-dissection specimens. Itaimstohelppathologyprofessionalspathologyresidents,pathologists’ assistants, and medical laboratory technicians— describe surgical and autopsy specimens as they perform gross dissection. Thepathologygrossroomandautopsysuitearefascinatingplaces that analyze specimens from the operating room. The specimens often involve a variety of disease processes, 1 or many organ systems, and—as a result—a multitude of gross appearances. Quite often, the same disease process appears different on similar specimen types, or different from patient to patient. As a pathology-lab professional, your job is to describe what you see, so that a pathologist or clinician can read the description and visualize the specimen. This can be a daunting task, given the variability and complexity of specimens— especially for new pathology staff at the beginning of their surgical gross-dissection training. A common question in the gross room is: “How would you describe this specimen?” Theipsideofthisquestion,fromaclinicianspointofview, is: “What does this specimen look like, based on this description?” This guide also aims to help clinicians and medical students navigate pathology reports.
