Nakhleh: Error Reduction and Prevention in Surgical Pathology
By Raouf Nakleh
2015, 223 pages, 25 illus, $149 list
Tissue diagnosis in surgical pathology is the most important determinant of patient outcomes in oncology and other medical conditions.

As with any form of testing, the test cycle in surgical pathology can be divided into pre-analytic (collection and handling of specimens), analytic (the actual determination of disease or other diagnostic information) and post-analytic (generation of reports and distribution).
Newman: Evidence-Based Diagnosis
By Thomas Newman and Michael Kohn
2009 (1st ed), 312 pages, 1200 illus, $305 list
The nervous system constitutes arguably the most complex organ system in the human body, which contributes to the over-susceptibility of disease in this area. Although brain tumors were once an automatic death sentence, the outlook for recovery has brightened significantly in the past decade. The pathologist plays an indispensable role in surgical diagnosis; he or she must accurately diagnose a potentially wide array of disease entities, determine the spread of disease within millimeters, and assess patient prognosis. This new and modern reference in neuropathology comprehensively covers all the methods used by pathologists to accurately diagnose a wide array of neurologic illnesses. Brain and spinal cord tumors are the predominant focus, but a full spectrum of infectious, inflammatory, and congenital disorders are also covered in detail, in both pediatric and adult populations, with a full range of diagnostic modalities. The book is illustrated with more than 1,200 full-color photomicrographs and accompanied by a CD-ROM of all images in a downloadable format..

Ranchod: Intraoperative Consultation in Surgical Pathology
By Mahendra Ranchod
2011 (1st ed), 356 pages, $137 list
Although frozen section diagnosis has been an integral part of surgical pathology for decades, this is the first textbook that offers a comprehensive clinicopathologic approach to the challenges of intraoperative consultation. Intraoperative diagnosis is challenging because of time constraints, sampling limitations, and the inability to perform a wide range of ancillary tests. Intraoperative Consultation in Surgical Pathology emphasizes the importance of clinical information, highlights the value of close collaboration with surgeons, and provides clear guidelines for the best way to examine specimens intraoperatively. Pathologists are then able to minimize error and diagnose with greater confidence. Most chapters in this book are co-authored by surgeons to ensure that their interests are represented. Essential reading for practising surgical pathologists, residents and fellows in pathology, this book will also be of value to fellows and surgeons in various surgical specialties who request intraoperative consultation.
