Microscopic Examination book
Making diagnoses using the microscope is the trade of most pathologists. If one has a breast biopsy or a tumor removed, the pathologist classiÞes the tumor and diagnoses the lesion as benign or malignant. The skill of making microscopic diagnoses is very useful in postmortem exams because the microscopic examination is used to support the gross Þndings in an autopsy.
