Diagnostic surgical pathology is a rapidly evolving field, informed by discoveries in molecular genetics and improvements in tumor classification. Uterine, hepatic, bone, lymphoma, gastroesophageal and soft tissue tumor pathology are examples of subspecialty areas that have made dramatic changes in recent years. Surgical pathologists must become familiar with recent changes in tumor classification, recently developed diagnostic markers, recently discovered molecular genetic alterations and evolving diagnostic criteria for neoplastic and non-neoplastic disorders in surgical pathology. They must also be intuitively conversant with relevant differential diagnoses, ordering appropriate panels of markers and molecular tests, and applying diagnostic criteria to arrive at specific diagnoses.
The American Registry of Pathology is a non-profit organization founded in 1921 and chartered by Congress to serve the medical scientific communities. ARP Press has been publishing the AFIP Fascicles of Tumor and Non-Tumor Pathology since 1990. ARP Press provides steep discounts on all its books to make them affordable to resident and fellow pathologists, and donates frequently to under-served countries.
