Recent years have seen increasing predictions of the demise of conventional microscopy in patient care and investigative medicine. However, these predictions fail to recognize the power of morphologic analysis by a skilled observer. The amount of information that can be obtained from a simple H&E slide represents a windfall in terms of data quality, quantity and cost when compared to any other available technique. Moreover, the value of such interpretation is irreplaceable as we develop newer… Expand
More than meets the eye: the changing face of histopathology
TLDR
This personal reflection on trends in histopathology over the past 50 years draws upon experience of professional training and practice in the specialty in the UK, finding consistency and reliability of histopathological diagnoses have steadily improved. Expand
A Survey of Methods for 3D Histology Reconstruction
TLDR
This paper reviews almost three decades of methods for 3D histology reconstruction from serial sections, used in the study of many different types of tissue, and attempts to identify the trends and challenges that the field is facing. Expand
Does everything a surgeon takes out have to be seen by a pathologist? A review of the current pathology practice
TLDR
There is general nationwide and even international consensus on which types of specimens deserve pathologic examination and which do not, but there are still discussions about the necessity of some pathologic examinations. Expand
Do you see what I see? The role of quality histopathology in scientific study
TLDR
The continuing role for careful, quality liver tissue evaluation in patient management and scientific studies is discussed, particularly in the authors' time of increasingly sophisticated tools for clinical testing and basic science investigations. Expand
Registration of Histological Sections with Clinical Imaging : A Survey
Combining histology and non-invasive imaging has long attracted the attention of the medical imaging community due to its potential to relate macroscopic information with the underlying microscopicExpand
Diminutive and Small Colorectal Polyps: The Pathologist's Perspective
  • Y. Kang
  • Medicine
  • Clinical endoscopy
  • 2014
TLDR
A "resect-and-discard" strategy applied to diminutive colorectal polyps is now one of the emerging issues among gastroenterologists, but it is not certain whether the implementation of the strategy has economic benefit in countries with an undervalued reimbursement system for pathologic examination. Expand
A review for cervical histopathology image analysis using machine vision approaches
TLDR
This article comprehensively review the development history of this research field with two crossed pipelines, referring to all related works since 1988 till 2020, so that machine vision scientists can see the dynamic of technological development clearly and keep up with the future development trend in this interdisciplinary field. Expand
Beyond the H&E: Advanced Technologies for in situ Tissue Biomarker Imaging.
TLDR
The purpose of this manuscript is to detail the scientific premise, tools and training, quality control, and data collection and analysis considerations needed for the most prominent advanced imaging technologies currently applied in tissue sections: immunofluorescence, in situ hybridization, laser capture microdissection, matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization imaging mass spectrometry, and spectroscopic/optical methods.

Histology without formalin?
  • R. Buesa
  • Medicine
  • Annals of diagnostic pathology
  • 2008
Because formalin is toxic, carcinogenic, and a poor preserver of nucleic acids, for more than 20 years, there have been numerous attempts to find a substitute, with as many different alternativeExpand
Decision Analysis and Decision Support Systems in Anatomic Pathology
In this chapter, we discuss two aspects of decision-making in anatomic pathology: decision analysis and decision support systems. Unguided statistical intuitions are notoriously flawed and keepingExpand

The discussion of the role that morphology plays and in all likelihood will continue to play for long time to come in “the molecular age” can be divided into two separate categories, i.e., those ofExpand
Validation of novel optical imaging technologies: the pathologists' view.
TLDR
This review will consider the selection of validation biomarkers; (2) standardization in tissue processing, diagnosis, reporting, and quantitative analysis; (3) the role of the pathologist in study design; and (4) reference standards, controls, and interobserver variability. Expand
Original research in pathology: judgment, or evidence-based medicine?
Pathology is both a medical specialty and an investigative scientific discipline, concerned with understanding the essential nature of human disease. Ultimately, pathology is accountable as well, asExpand
Prognostic immunohistologic markers in human tumors: why are so few used in clinical practice?
TLDR
It is suggested that the most valuable immunohistologic markers are those that reflect genetic abnormalities, that are linked to the cell of origin, or that reflect tumor infiltrating cells or stromal reactions. Expand
Correlation between clinicopathological features and karyotype in lipomatous tumors. A report of 178 cases from the Chromosomes and Morphology (CHAMP) Collaborative Study Group.
TLDR
It is concluded that cytogenetic abnormalities are common in lipomatous tumors, correlate reliably with morphological sub-type in many cases, and can be of diagnostic value in histologically borderline or difficult cases. Expand

  • Medicine
  • The American journal of surgical pathology
  • 2006
TLDR
It is assumed for the sake of argument that molecular profiling, in various forms to be determined, will become fundamental to the delivery of optimal oncology care and will become the domain of subspecialty labs, either academic or commercial, with surgical pathologists observing from the sidelines.

  • 1999
TLDR
Four cases of an unusual sporadic thyroid tumor that shares the morphologic features of a distinctive follicular cell neoplasm previously proposed as a feasible indicator of familial adenomatous polyposis are described, with the behavior of this variant seems to be similar to that of conventional papillary carcinoma.
