Dale Telgenhoff, PhD, MBA, HTL(ASCP), Histotechnology Program Director, Tarleton State University, Fort Worth, TX created for the NSH Laboratory Webinar Series

Histotechnician roles are expanding, with some hospitals employing histotechs for the gross analysis and preparation of specimens for histology. This workshop will review the fundamentals of gross dissection such as orientation, dissection, marking, description, and sampling. We will also examine the role of the pathologist, pathology assistant, and histotechnologist in this evolving area of the laboratory. Safety concerns in the gross room will be discussed, as well as requisitions, considerations for different tissue types, and the purpose of a slide index.
