Biocare Medical Excellence in Patient Care Award at NSH 2018

Utah Gastroenterology is the 2018 recipient of the Biocare Medical Excellence in Patient Care Award. The Utah Gastroenterology Histology Lab is a relatively new, small, private practice histology lab in Salt Lake City. The lab was nominated by the group of pathologists that provide diagnosis for the biopsies taken at Utah Gastroenterology. The pathologists were impressed by the extra efforts the lab takes to provide them with information above and beyond what is needed to make an accurate diagnosis. The histology lab manages a complex workflow, accepting specimens from different locations across the state. Despite this, they are meticulous with their processes, and quality control.

“NSH’s Symposium/Convention is the largest histology conference in the United States with over 100 workshops, an exhibit hall, and plenty of opportunity to network with fellow histologists. If you’re considering attending, especially if it’s your first time, it might seem overwhelming. Fixation on Histology is here to help!

We’ve got the list of top 5 most popular workshops, at this year’s Convention.

5. Molecular Biology Principles and Techniques for the Histotech (WS#56): Molecular pathology is often a less familiar entity for those accustomed to IHC and proteins. This seminar is intended to provide a comprehensive overview of basic molecular biology to offer a better understanding of the applications and diagnostic relevance of molecular pathology. A review of the scientific principles of molecular biology will be conducted. This will include understanding the transcription and translation processes. Different molecular techniques from PCR to ISH will be covered. The pros and cons of these techniques will be discussed, including which molecular techniques and methods are best suited for diagnostic, screening or treatment assessment purposes. The presentation will also look at the future for molecular pathology, and discuss routes for personalized medicine.”
