ANP.11665 refers to a non PA or non pathologist grossing tissue. CAP calls
grossing tissue "processing specimens". There has to be a manual with all
grossing techniques such as "Ackermans' Pathology" or a manual made at the
ANP.22990 deals with performing FISH & ISH, there should be tech samples
that can be ordered from CAP, I would check the web site. But if you do not
perform FISH or ISH, the question is N/A.

Subject: [Histonet] Cap checklist question

I have a question concerning CAP checklist question ANP.11665. Are .
there written procedures for processing specimens.  Is this referring to
tech's or to residents that are grossing.  We only have pathology
residents grossing and taking care of specimens. What are predictive
markers, this refers to ANP.22990.  This is a new checklist question.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
