The Johns Hopkins Atlas of Pancreatic Pathology is the fourth teaching app in our series from the Johns Hopkins University Department of Pathology. This teaching tool was designed for medical residents, fellows, and practicing pathologists. The atlas covers a wide range of entities from benign to malignant and from common to rare. It contains a multitude of microscopic images that highlight and discuss different features essential to making diagnoses in prostate pathology.
The Atlas of Surgical Pancreatic Pathology is composed of five different modules: a guide to features that support a diagnosis of carcinoma, a guide to features of atypical glands suspicious for carcinoma, an algorithm that teaches cancer grading, a discussion of the new cancer grade grouping, and instructions for measuring involvement of a needle core biopsy by cancer. A searchable image atlas and an image-based quiz are also available for further study.
The image atlas contains nearly 700 high resolution color images with expertly-authored captions. These 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. The flash cards module allows you to view a randomly generated assortment of images from the image bank and subsequently view the diagnosis and caption by simply “flipping” the card over.
Viewing multiple examples of the same entity/feature will help hone and strengthen your skills of prostate pathology!
