  • – Marcia Canto, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD

Members of the Rodger C. Haggitt Gastrointestinal Pathology Society Education Committee selected this topic in order to highlight the added value of imaging to microscopic diagnosis.  Good surgical pathology diagnoses begin with good gross descriptions.  But in the days of biopsies, the organ(s) involved are seen by radiologists and endoscopists in most cases.  Endoscopists sometimes serve both roles.  Since the microscopic image of focal histopathology may be identical to multifocal or diffuse disease, the best diagnosis for the patient may be dependent on the information provided by radiology or endoscopy.  The selected pathology lectures will demonstrate how a more sophisticated pathophysiological interpretation can result from the gross input by a radiologist or endoscopist.  The Memorial lecture is designed for the same effect, from the point of view of advanced endoscopy.
