RE: [Histonet] "Predictation"

From:"Sebree Linda A."

Hi Joyce,

Our pathologists don't usually go that far but one in particular (that doesn't dictate) will write up his results and diagnosis on the report but does at least wait until he sees the immunos before he gives the report to the transcriptionists to finish.  He's rarely wrong but on those few instances that he is, we do give him a hard time about it!

This may sound like a stupid question, but do your pathologists ever predictate results of immuno and special stains before they receive them? In other words, dictate what they anticipate the results of the stain to be and then dictate changes later if necessary? 
I have been asked to pose this question. You guys are the first I turn to! 
Thanks much, j
