Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

Anatomic pathology has significantly evolved over the past several years. Indeed, although gross examination and microscopic evaluation of tissue specimens remain essential pillars of cancer diagnosis, modern anatomic pathologists have had to acquire novel skills to keep pace with the most recent advances in different fields. Modern anatomic pathology has undergone important technical innovations. A major innovation has been the implementation of molecular biology and digital pathology and the application of artificial intelligence algorithms. In addition, modern pathologists should promote professional adoption of social media to facilitate knowledge-sharing within the pathology community. The aim of this Special Issue is to present new results and advances regarding modern anatomic pathology. The editors hope that this collection of papers will provide a perspective on the evolution of anatomic pathology and modern pathologists.
