CURIOUS - no reaction!

From:Vinnie Della Speranza

I have been watching this thread (Her 2neu/ FISH) over thepast week with some interest, wondering if anyone else would react to this but no one has. I hope that it is because everyone is distracted with other things and NOT complacent.

No one commented that at this one facility (quoted below) the histotechs perform that method but are NOT asked to read the result.

in an earlier post (source deleted to protect the innocent!) someone wrote

Our histotechs perform the staining procedure for FISH, but we have a cytotech that is trained to read them along with a pathologist.>>>

it is not typically a cytotech's scope of practice to read out tissues.
 Why aren't histotechs reading out these cases????
