The clinicopathological meeting is one of the major areas of contact between clinician and pathologist, and the review of histology reports at such meetings can be regarded as an aspect of quality control for diagnostic pathology.
To assess the effects of this review, we have conducted a formal analysis of clinicopathological meetings in the Southampton University Hospitals.
Over a 14-week period, 416 cases were reviewed at 58 meetings.
Seven categories of meeting were involved; Breast; Dermatology; Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) and Oral Surgery; Gastroenterology; General Surgery; Oncology; and Urology.
