Consensus meeting: Everyday the difficult, unusual or rare cases are seen and discussed by all the consultants altogether to make the final diagnosis. 2. Malignancy Board: Everyday, as a precautionary measure, the malignant cases are confirmed by a board comprising of several consultants. 3. Histopathology and Cytopathology audit: Once in every month, cases of histopathology and cytopathology are drawn at a random and reviewed by all the consultants to find out discrepancy or errors. 4. Laboratory audit: Once in every month, the consultants all sit together to review the total number of each of the departmental services including histopathology, cytopathology, immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, frozen section and cytogenetics. And also to find out whether there is any problem concerning any of those services and to discuss measures to solve the problem. 5. Cytopathology service streamline: Cytopathology reports are now given on the second day considering the day of collection as the first day. There are two FNA collection rooms which are open from 8 am to 4 pm every working day. E. Plan for 2010 1. Histopathology reporting expedition through institution of automatic tissue processor. 2. Streamlining histopathology reports. 3. Expansion of immunohistochemistry service. 4. Expansion of cytogenetics service. 5. Joint protocol development with University of Chicago/Preparation of MOU 6.
