From Diagnosis to Treatment - The Story of a Breast Cancer Patient, Part 2 of 4, Microtomy to Special Stains

CE Credits and Certificates of Attendance are no longer available for webinars more than 12 months old.

Overview

In the case of Breast Cancer, the patient’s cancer is usually detected by a mammogram or palpitation of an experienced Physician. However, these first indications that something is wrong must be confirmed by a more scientific approach. Usually what follows is an actual biopsy; a sample of the tissue in question is removed from the person. Once a tumor is confirmed from the biopsy, then a more radical surgical approach may be necessary or other treatments are performed. Part 2 of the series addresses the importance of proper microtomy of these surgical samples and knowledge of basics of H&E stains.
