The Pathology Museum

The role of the pathology museum has declined. The costs of space, maintenance, and administration of specimen collections and displays are difficult to justify in the current economic environment, particularly because color photography, printed atlases, CD-ROM libraries, and commercially available organ models represent excellent alternatives, at least for teaching purposes. However, temporary preparation, storage, and display of specimens still is important for photographic documentation or use of actual samples in clinicopathologic conferences and other activities (see "Autopsy Photography"). In this chapter, only a few basic techniques are discussed. For comprehensive reviews of classic museum techniques, see refs. 1-3.
