[Histonet] Tech to doc ratio

From:"Stephen Peters M.D."

This tech to doc ratio is not going to yield very practical info because of the great variability 
of practice and specimen types.  All of these entrys could actually yield some valid data if 
we look at blocks per histotechs and not include immunotechs. The immunotechs will 
vary depending on the volumes. We cut about 500 blocks /day with 10 techs and a 
section head.. We do about 80 immunos/ day and have a dedicated immunotech. We have seven surgical pathologists  reading  it.
