Bone tissue can be involved by primitive or metastatic tumors and requires a specific processing both at the department of pathology and during multidisciplinary meetings. The development of fine-needle percutaneous biopsies and of molecular techniques in bone tumor pathology requires a specific management. Moreover, decalcification of samples is crucial but can be deleterious if not controlled or not appropriate. Read More
