Abstract
ABSTRACT
This study evaluated the completeness of pathology reports in 82 consecutive patients based on the Minimum Data Set by the Royal College of Pathologists, Great Britain. The quality of a histopathology report in CRC will determine prognosis and the need for adjuvant therapy. The pathology reports were reviewed by a single person who looked for 17 pathology data sets for colon cancer and 15 for rectal cancer. Completeness of reporting was classified as 40-50%, 60-70% or 80-100%. Tumour involvement at resection margin was reported in 91 .5%.
