[Histonet] Hello fellow Histo's , 2 questions for you

Dear Kim:
Although histology is practices very similarly all around the world, each histolab operates with its own rules because there are no general rules.
1- who finds the glomerulii? Usually is a pathologist, but some have trained a histology technologist that takes care of the DIF or to prepare the samples for TEM and the pathologist task is delegated to that histotech. So, it depends on the pathology director to define how the work is done.
2- off site frozen sections? sometimes a histotech is sent to help the pathologist, but usually the pathologist takes care of the whole thing. So, again, it depends on the site although the custom is:
1- glomerulio are identified by the PT, and
2- PT take care of off site frozens.
Hope this will help you 
Happy Holidays
René J.

First of all I hope all of you are enjoying your Holiday. And I expect 
that many of you are not at work like me, but when you get a chance if you 
could help me out by answering these two questions I would be very 
grateful. :-) 

1) In your lab when you receive renal biopsy's  fresh. Who finds the 
Glomeruli using a microscope? A pathologist or a Histologist? 

2) Also, if you have frozen sections off site, do you always send a 
Histologist to assist the Pathologist? 

Thanks for your help in advance

Many Blessing to each of you!
