This week the Q&A BUG paid a visit to Toronto General Hospital’s Surgical Pathology Lab and ‘infected’ Emmanuelle Chung, Pathologists’ Assistant (PA). The nomination came from our previous Q&A BUG ‘victim,’ Catherine Wang. You can check out Catherine’s photo Q&A HERE.
As a PA, Emmanuelle is responsible for the grossing of clinical biopsy specimens. As different specimen samples are sent to the lab – Emmanuelle will inspect and dissect the tissue or organ, detailing the characteristics of the sample and looking for abnormalities. Her goal is to supply the best possible tissue sample to UHN Pathologists to ensure an accurate diagnoses.
Emmanuelle, along with the other PAs in LMP rotate across UHN sites and have experience with a wide variety of anatomical samples. They are part of a big picture pathology team, which included technologists, technicians and specialty pathologists who prepare specimen samples from biopsy to microscopic review to ensure patients receive expert diagnoses.
