Allen: Histopathology Specimens
By Derek Allen
2012, 553 pages, 129 illus, $209 list
Covering anatomical, clinical, pathological and laboratory aspects of surgical histopathology specimens, Histopathology Specimens: Clinical, Pathological and Laboratory Aspects, Second Edition relates specimen dissection and its clinical context to relevant histopathology reports, and therefore a more comprehensive patient prognosis and management is possible. Histopathology Specimens: Clinical, Pathological and Laboratory Aspects, Second Edition explains pathological and clinical terminology, including a glossary of clinical request form abbreviations. A standardised step-wise approach to specimen handling is illustrated with simple line diagrams and highlights essentials of the histopathology report, relating them to appropriate specimen dissection. The integrated multidisciplinary team approach taken to the modern clinical management of patients is reflected by correlating patient presentation, diagnostic and staging investigations with histopathology specimens. Current WHO and TNM tumor classifications are referenced. Histopathology Specimens: Clinical, Pathological and Laboratory Aspects, Second Edition will be of educative value and act as a reference tool for the medical undergraduate student, medical trainee in histopathology and the biomedical scientist, and as a useful aide memoire for the histopathology consultant.
Gupta: Grossing Techniques in Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology
By Manu Gupta
2012, 68 pages, 39 illus, $64 list
Gross pathology refers to the macroscopic manifestations of disease in organs, tissues, and body cavities. Grossing is a very important step in surgical pathology and inadequate sampling of the gross specimen can lead to misinterpretation of the slides. For oral and maxillofacial specimens, a careful gross examination and description are infinitely superior to the examination of a random microscopic section. This book provides a highly visual step by step guide to grossing procedure like inital handling of the specimen, from where to take sections, how to do reporting etc. Contains high quality photographs, illustrations and tables that will help readers to understand the topic easily. Although the book is an introductory text but it lays a solid foundation for post graduate students and prepare them for future.
Lester: Manual of Surgical Pathology
By Susan Lester
2010, 608 pages, 39 illus, $152 list
Dr. Lester's Manual of Surgical Pathology, 3rd Edition offers complete, practical guidance on the evaluation of the surgical pathology specimen, from its arrival in the department to preparation of the final report. Inside, you'll find step-by-step instructions on specimen processing, tissue handling, gross dissection technique, histological examination, application of special stains, development of a differential diagnosis, and more. This thoroughly revised New Edition integrates cutting-edge procedures well as the latest staging and classification information. Coverage of the latest standards and procedures for the laboratory and handling of surgical pathology specimens are valuable assets to pathologists, pathology assistants, and anyone working in a pathology laboratory. Plus, with Expert Consult functionality, you'll have easy access to the full text online as well as all of the book's illustrations and links to Medline.
Rose: Atlas of Gross Pathology
By Alan Rose
2008 (1st ed), 672 pages, 1200 illus, $153 list
This atlas provides a comprehensive illustration and description of a wide range and number of pathologic processes and diseases affecting all the major organs of the body. Emphasis is placed on how the anatomic structure of different organs may determine the pattern of involvement by disease processes and how such patterns may aid in the correct diagnosis of the gross pathology. In some cases, multiple illustrations of disease processes are given to show evolution of the disease. Histologic illustrations of selected gross lesions are also included where relevant. The atlas is illustrated with more than 1,200 color photomicrographs. Atlas of Gross Pathology is essential for practicing pathologists, but can also provide a solid foundation for surgeons, internists, and obstetricians/gynecologists.
Sanna: The Temporal Bone: A Manual for Dissection and Surgical Approaches
By Mario Sanna
2005, 144 pages, $120 list
The anatomy of the temporal bone is one of the most complicated areas in the human body. The vital structures, the three-dimensional relationships involved, and the fact that these structures are hidden within bony canals make the anatomy difficult to grasp. Described as a dream come true by the authors, Professor Sanna and his colleagues have devoted a major effort to creating this book to serve as a guide for young trainees wanting to learn more about temporal bone dissection. It provides comprehensive, high-quality, full-color pictures of the detailed steps of all the major surgical approaches that can be performed in the temporal bone, supplemented by images of cadaveric dissections as an aid to understanding the intracranial anatomy when indicated by the approach.
Weber: Shearer's Manual of Human Dissection
By John Weber
1999, 320 pages, $58 list
This highly regarded laboratory guide takes a straightforward, body system approach to human dissection with clear line drawing illustrations depicting incision lines and anatomical structure. It shows students where to cut, what to expect, and what scalpel to use to view anatomical structures. Substantially revised, this edition features updated and expanded content tailored to recent curriculum changes in anatomy teaching; the introduction of correlated radiographs to fit current teaching trends; and the use of a second color to highlight key points. Large figures, and a spiral binding that allows the pages to lie flat make the Shearer's Manual easy to handle and use in the anatomy lab.
