This highly practical guide helps pathology professionals quickly and accurately describe surgical and autopsy specimens as they perform gross dissection. It's an indispensable resource for anyone who needs to interpret pathology reports. 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.

In Gross Pathology Handbook, Dr. Christopher Naugler and Christopher Horn 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.

Gross Pathology Handbook fills a much needed niche for a reference of terms and examples in gross dissection of autopsy and surgical pathology specimens. This exceptionally illustrated reference is invaluable to pathology laboratories, students, pathologist assistants, and residents, as they build detailed and precise specimen descriptions, the foundation of an accurate diagnosis.

Gross Pathology Handbook is an excellent resource for students, teachers and those at the gross bench alike. This comprehensive collection of gross images with their corresponding descriptive text really delivers. Additional information on the tissue type affected, common etiology and sample gross descriptions make it practical and easy to use. It should be a well‑thumbed, permanent feature in every gross lab and on the desk of anyone who ever has to read a pathology report.
