Multiple site prostate biopsies

From:"Cornett, Lorraine D"

I am curious as to how you receive your multiple site prostate biopsies, do you receive multiple quadrants per side, if so, how do you process embed and cut them?  Do you use multi compartment cassettes, keeping different quadrants from the same side, seperate in the same block?  Do you use ink to identify quadrants from the same side?  
Please  give me all ideas and suggestions that your lab uses?

Thanks in advance
