SubjectUMCN 1.2: Molecular diagnosis, prognosis and monitoring
This paper is the result of a meeting of the European Association of Pathologists, Uropathology Division in Florence 2003. The aims of this meeting were to establish: guidelines for specimen handling by urologists and minimum requirements for data accompanying testicular specimens submitted to pathologists; a consensus on techniques for processing specimens by pathologists; the essential information required from pathology reports; areas where our standard practice is traditional rather than evidence based and where further studies are required. The general aims of histopathology are to give or confirm a diagnosis; assess established prognostic markers; identify changes associated with treatment; provide information for audit (i.e. imaging, urology and pathology) and maintain a permanent record (slides/blocks).
