I would like to hear about whatever system you may have for orienting prostate needle biopsies straight and handling from bx through embedding.

I'd especially like to know if anyone is using the procedure outlined in this paper:

"Optimized preembedding method improves the histologic yield of prostatic core needle biopsies," Rogatsch, H et al, The Prostate, 42:124-129 (2000).

Thanks ahead of time!
