Abstract

To describe a prospective method of quality assurance adjusted to an ideal group of pathologists, easily feasible in routine surgical pathology. The Authors examined the same slides (EE) independently and without time-limits. In the same session the individual diagnosis were compared and discussed in order to provide only one conclusive diagnoses. After the discussion, diagnostic agreement is 100%. Peer and simultaneous review yields sufficient benefits in increasing the accuracy of diagnostic reports. It stimulates discussion of diagnostic criteria and terminology, creates more uniform reports, and serves as an educational vehicle for pathologists
