A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Interpreting histological and cytological samples is not just a case of looking under the microscope and seeing an obvious answer to what is this lesion or mass?. Sometimes that does happen, but more often the findings need to be put into context of size, location, chronicity etc to come to a diagnosis. We are happy to get an epistle regarding the sample but when you are busy, that is a chore that you may not wish to embark on. Take photos instead! It saves you from RSI and can give so much more detail than words.
