30 May 2014: Webpathology links still work

The links to Webpathology.com still work, although we are having problems with the thumbnails.  We have been discussing this with the owner of Webpathology, and are implementing a "fix" that we think will work.

28 May 2014: Easier way to post images using Flickr

There is an easy way to post images on our Flickr page.  Just email the pictures to part85keep@photos.flickr.com and send a CC to CommentsPathout@gmail.com.  You can use the subject line to give the image a title and the body to add a description, which should include the diagnosis and the contributor's name.

Let us know if you have any questions.

9 May 2014: New Jobs Report posted; we break the 25K barrier

We have now posted the Pathology Jobs Report for the first quarter of 2014, available from the Jobs page or by clicking here.  Learn what specialties are hot, and what employers are looking for.

On May 7, 2015, we broke the 25,000 barrier with 25,093 visits.  Right now, in addition to posting updated and new reviews (which are described on the Updates page), we are posting new images to the Ovary Tumor chapter and from our Flickr page.

We are exploring a Membership option, whose proceeds will help us expand the website.  We will offer some special perquisites to those who pay for membership.  More details to follow.

2 May 2014: Virtual slides


The Virtual Slide links from the University of Iowa have changed, leaving a big blank box. Apparently, they are being moved to http://biolucida.net, and viewing will require you to  download a slide viewer.  Since we do not link to images that require registration or plug-ins to view, we will start removing these links. Ultimately, we hope to replace them with Virtual Slides from these and other sites:

·      International Academy of Cytology: http://www.cytology-iac.org/educational-resources/virtual-slide-library

·      University of Leeds: http://www.virtualpathology.leeds.ac.uk/public/

·      University of Michigan: http://histology.med.umich.edu/virtual-slide-index


·      Rosai collection: http://rosaicollection.org/index.cfm



We appreciate your patience as we work to make all content on our website accessible to everyone.
