In this webinar, we discussed how to interpret your pathology report. We covered interpretation of all parts of a pathology report, beginning with understanding the final diagnosis and diagnostic comment. We reviewed the results and significance of performed ancillary testing, including immunohistochemistry, prognostic biomarker testing, and molecular testing. We ended by discussing how the aforementioned pathology report data affects clinical surgical and therapeutic decision-making.
