About this book
- Chapters dedicated to essential parts of the diagnostic process (macroscopic examination, frozen section, cytology) and patient management (multidisciplinary meetings)
- Images and diagrams to help with specimen orientation, dissection, identification of local anatomy, and tissue sampling
- Over 600 full-colour macroscopic and microscopic images
- Tables and cross-referencing for easy access to the information required for diagnosis
- In-depth discussion of differential diagnoses, mimics and pitfalls
Pathology of the Pancreas: A Practical Approach covers all the diagnostic entities in adult pancreatic pathology, providing extensive illustrations and tables to assist the pathologist at the time of diagnostic reporting of histological and cytological specimens. Potential pitfalls and mimics in pancreatic pathology are highlighted and illustrated, and guidance is provided regarding how to recognize and avoid them.
Pathology of the Pancreas: A Practical Approach enables the pathologist to recognize the various pathological entities and provide the key information in their pathology reports, which is necessary for the individual patient’s further management. It is based on the most recent diagnostic algorithms, international consensus guidelines, and systems for disease classification, staging and grading. Clinical information is also included, where it is important for the multidisciplinary team management discussion.
Pathology of the Pancreas: A Practical Approach is a bench book for everyday use beside the microscope and provides the diagnostic pathologist with a comprehensive, well-illustrated and extensively cross-referenced approach to pancreatic pathology.
