The College of American Pathologists unveils updated patient website today

Transforming Pathology - Website Update
The College of American Pathologists (CAP) unveiled today new resources and features on MyBiopsy.org to help patients better understand their disease. Neuropathological diagnoses discussed on the site include: anaplastic astrocytoma, glioblastoma, pilocytic astrocytoma, and oligodendroglioma. If one of your patients has questions about one of these pathological diagnoses, you can refer them to this website, which is part of a larger Transforming Pathology initiative by the CAP.

Plus it seems quite useful in raising the profile of pathology in general to the wider public

Sounds like a great resource. I would hope that people doing the biopsy, like IR, would point this out to the patient.

With CJD on the rise, although often misdiagnosed, why isn't Prion Disease on this list?
