RE: Grossing Protocols


Grossing protocols are fine as a rough outline.  Tissue grossing in pathology must be handled individually for each specimen as the circumstances warrant.  That is where proper training and education come in.  I use grossing protocols as a very basic starting point early in my training and as such have never expanded upon the guidelines you can find in Ackerman's.

Have you established any grossing protocols (number of cassettes/ specimen) that you care to share?  Surgical Pathology Dissection by Hruban, et al. is a great reference  but have you establised your own? Thanks
