Gross Pathology Handbook, 2nd Ed.
A Guide to Descriptive Terms
Christopher Horn, Dr. Christopher Naugler
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 171 gross descriptive terms paired with images of gross specimens, including five new listings for the second edition. 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.
4 Stars, 96/100 “As the authors state themselves, this book can be used by trainees to study the specimens and terminology used to describe them. Furthermore, it can be used as a manual during grossing, to compare gross findings with the images and use appropriate terms. It is a one-of-a-kind book on the market and it will nicely complement other grossing and autopsy manuals. I would highly recommend this book to all pathologists.”Doody Review
