Content

Population based organized mammography screening resulted in a revolution in the detection and management of breast cancer. Unfortunately, the histopathology technique has not changed, and the archaic, small section histopathology technique is still used in everyday practice. In addition, the terminology of describing the different breast cancer subtypes does not take into account the site of origin of breast cancer, resulting in misunderstanding among the diagnostic and therapeutic team members.

This lecture describes the modern, large format thin and thick section (3D) histopathology techniques and demonstrates their benefit for the professionals and for the patients.
