[Histonet] RE: Gold standard of Tissue Dx

From:"Terri Braud"

me of the bad years in Cytology. Abnormal slides are peer reviewed but
not 'negative' ones which is odd; if you diagnosed something then the
Patient will be treated (or further investigated which might flag up
errors), if you call something negative then the Patient=20may have no
treatment unless the symptoms remain and further tests reveal the
abnormality. How gold is the gold standard of tissue diagnosis?

Perhaps we will have the government step into and interfere again.  I prefer to think that the answer is a=20documented and well defined quality assurance program where a percentage of random cases are subject to peer review
"If we agree to agree, then it's arbitration.  If we=20agree to disagree, it's QA"
