Small Tissue Pieces

Small tissue pieces should be placed between Sponges or filtered into a Mesh Bag.

In these cases, the use of mesh bags/sponges must be documented in the gross description. The standard templates in Dragon have been modified (see list below).

For grossers, any use of mesh bags or sponges NOT already in the templates must be ADDED.

For pathologists, please be aware of this change in the final reports.
