Real Time Consultation
Unsure what to sample or how to sample? Dealing with a challenging case and just need to bounce around some ideas? Found something unusual in the middle of surgery?
Consultation is available at no cost to regular clients of VETPATH Canada. We will try our best to help you at the moment you need it! Contact us to set up a consultation. Facetime is available upon request.
No one likes receiving a pathology report that says "NON-DIAGNOSTIC SAMPLE". Unsure whether your cytology slides are "good enough" to submit for evaluation?
Call us and we will walk you through how to take photos of the slides through your microscope eyepiece with your smartphone.
Or, if you feel comfortable doing it yourself:
1. Take at least one or two photos at each magnification, of the most cellular regions of the slide(s) and/or the cells of interest to you.
2. Please make sure the photos are in focus!
3. Email the photos and background information about the patient/clinical context from your clinic email address to email@example.com. You may find it easier to just fill out our submission form.
DISCLAIMER: Any advice given about the nature of the sample is limited to the areas you choose to photograph, and by the clinical information provided. Would you want to provide an official diagnosis over the phone for one of your clients? No - you would want to see the patient in person! The same goes for us: an official diagnosis requires the slides to be submitted for an official cytopathology report.
