22 August 2017: What do you buy through Amazon.com?

As you may know, we receive a commission from Amazon when you use the Amazon links on our website to buy anything through Amazon. We've noticed an increase in purchase of "other items" besides pathology books. So we wondered, what do people like to buy through Amazon? Electronics? Clothes? Office supplies?

Well - no matter what it is you buy, we are always grateful when you go through our website links first. It's an easy way to support PathologyOutlines.com!

We have added new images to the following topics:

21 August 2017: Images needed

Our request this week is for images relevant to:

Thyroid gland, Follicular carcinoma - cytology images

Cervix, Stratified mucin producing intraepithelial lesions (SMILE) - micro images

We believe it is important to have an adequate number of high quality images on our server, because images on other servers often disappear.  If you own images of these entities, please email them as attachments to Dr. Nat Pernick at NatPernick@gmail.com, with any corresponding clinical history.  There is no payment for image contributions, but we will acknowledge you as contributor, so please indicate how you want your name to be displayed.
