Morphological methods of malignant tumors investigation



This review discusses the morphological methods of tumors’ investigation in its historical aspect. Practice shows that
the understanding of different technologies increasingly used in pathology is nowadays a very important part for clinical
management. Molecular-genetic information has been incorporated in a diagnostic algorithm for various entities and
is widely used for therapeutic decisions. Special attention is paid to the achievements in molecular pathological tumor
profiling that allows an effective approach to prognostic and/or predictive biomarkers.
