Atlas of Pancreas Pathology

Description

This app is a teaching tool for medical residents, fellows, and practicing pathologists.

The Atlas of Pancreas Pathology is comprised of three modules: an interactive teaching algorithm, a search-able image atlas, and an image-based quiz. Viewing multiple examples of the same entity or feature from this large, rich image atlas will strengthen your diagnostic skills.

Teaching Algorithm. The teaching algorithm is a tool to teach the diagnostic criteria for the most common neoplasms of the pancreas. The algorithm consists of a series of usually dichotomous decision points, starting with determining if the tumor is solid or cystic, which end in specific diagnoses. Gross and microscopic photographs, together with didactic illustrations created by medical illustrator Bona Kim, support the instructional design of the algorithm. The algorithm was adapted with permission from RH Hruban, MB Pitman, and DS Klimstra, Tumors of the Pancreas. Washington D.C.: American registry of Pathology; 2007. Atlas of Tumor Pathology; 4th series, fascicle 6.

Image Atlas. The image atlas contains over 1,400 high resolution color images with captions authored by a leading expert, and covers 115 diagnostic entities. These gross and microscopic photographs can be viewed together or separately, and two entities can be compared, side by side. The atlas can be viewed by diagnosis or by features (these features re-enforce the diagnostic features used in the algorithm), and the atlas can be searched using a key word search. You can create your own albums and add images you select from from the atlas to these albums.

Quiz: The Quiz contains 166 multiple choice questions for self-study.

Explore this app and improve your pancreatic diagnostic skills. We welcome your feedback. Please e-mail Dr. Hruban at rhruban@jhmi.edu . If you find an error, please let us know so we can correct it.
