Diagnostic panels 

Within Pathology-DNA diagnostic expert panels concerning specific areas of interest are operational.

 

Diagnostic expert panel on Melanoma

The panel on melanocytic lesions is approved and supported by the Dutch Comprehensive Cancer Center (Integraal Kankercentrum Nederland IKNL). The IKNL supports diagnostic panels to improve the expertise on infrequent diseases more complicated to diagnose, such as melanomas, malignant lymphomas and soft tissue tumors.

The Melanoma Panel was founded by the dermatopathologists Monique Koopmans and Carola de Wild. It is the ninth regional panel supported by the IKNL, acknowledged because it fulfills several criteria. Two expert dermatopathologists are always present at each session. Sessions are held each month, and are open to pathologists of other hospitals. All cases presented and discussed are recorded in a database and the results are reported in an annual review.

 

Increase of expertise

The acknowledgement and financial contribution by the IKNL greatly support the work of the Melanoma panel. It allows us to compensate for secretarial assistance, to organize a meeting on a special subject concerning melanocytic lesions once or twice a year, and to attend national and international symposia on melanoma and pay visits to renowned experts in this field of interest. Therefore, the panel members are very pleased that Prof.Dr. W.Mooi, the founding father of the Dutch Melanoma panel, is willing to frequent the panel meetings regularly. Undoubtedly, all these activities will increase the level of expertise.

 

Besides the IKNL Melanoma panel, Pathology-DNA also hosts diagnostic panels on lymphomas/bone marrow disorders and interstitial lung diseases.
