The Role of Practicing Pathologists in Personalized Medicine

Human pathologists are the bridge between the laboratory and the clinician. A laboratory test begins with the idea of performing such a test and ends after the interpretation of the final result has produced an action with an outcome. Precision (personalized) medicine is a sophisticated expression of advanced clinical laboratory testing. Best practices dictate that a physician chooses the right test on the right patient at the right time and that the result benefits the patient.
