This may help:

NSH has FREE to NSH members a handout on
LABORATORY (per NCCLS' guidelines)".

It gives each of the headings, talks about the headings,
and gives examples on how to use this format for histology

For non-NSH members, the cost is $5.

For more information, go to the NSH homepage at:

Then click on education.

Then click on ed. material.

Then scroll down until you find this handout
(and other free or cheap material).

To pull up an order form, scroll all the
way to the bottom, and click on the form.

Hope this helps.
