Expert Pitch

Newswise — Patrick L. Fitzgibbons, MD, FCAPDepartment of Pathology, St. Jude Medical Center, Fullerton, CA is available to discuss the collaborative approach pathologists use to diagnose potentially cancerous biopsies. While a recent study shows that a pathologist makes the correct diagnosis well over 90 percent of the time, all pathologists know that the health and treatment of every patient is best served through a teamwork approach of collaboration -- between pathologists and with clinicians and other doctors. The practice of pathology is far more complex than a simple test for a medical journal.

Dr. Carey Z. August, MD, can explain "Does DCIS Mean Cancer," as she did in this video: http://bit.ly/1See3wi.
