|From:||"SALA,ROBERT" <SALAR@siouxvalley.org> (by way of histonet)|
In our lab it is the pathologists who evaluate whether the renal biopsy is
adequate or not. However, some of the techs have the capability of making
We use a dissecting scope and look for the glomeruli, which appear as little
red dots in the biopsy sample. Sometimes they are very hard to see,
especially in a diseased kidney, and then it is good to have a path around
to make the final decision.
