Re: [Histonet] Embedding

From:"David Clark"


I was trained to always cut the less dense tissue first. In doing Mohs I
always cut thru the underly dermis before the epidermis. I also try to
embed the tissue at a 45 degree angle with the epidermis on the right.
In my experience there is a great deal of difficulty in trying to cut
thru the epidermis first. With bone or hard tissue I also try to cut
thru the less dense first, if at all possible.

I have a question for all of the derm and hard tissue people out there. 
do you embed the sections?  Do you cut the dense or hard tissue first or
- or do you embed at an angle?  One individual is questioning the answer
in the study guide and so far I have different answers from those I have
