 eMJA: Anatomical pathology
These two studies have important implications for the future of diagnostic medicine and anatomical pathology, although the message is different in each case.
In the first study,1 Armes and colleagues identified morphological features associated with specific genetic alterations in a group of cancers, combining morphological interpretation and pattern recognition with knowledge of mutations at specific points of the chromosomes in the cancer cells.
Although the attention of government and the media has moved on from the autopsy, the future of hospital autopsies is by no means clear, and pathologists will need to clarify their own commitment to the autopsy, possibly in the face of diminishing support from clinicians and hospital administrators.
