Pathology Second Opinion

Terascop allows you to obtain a pathology second opinion from experts recognized for their excellence and high level of specialization.

When to request a pathology second opinion?

  • When judging a difficult diagnosis (rare or complex pathology, equivocal tumor grade)
  • When interpretation requires complementary techniques (specific immunohistochemistry, molecular biology)
  • When the histological material is small and does not allow an extensive immunohistochemical study.
  • If the diagnosis involves heavy therapeutic consequences

Our offers of second opinion

When creating your request for a second opinion, Terascop's experts will direct you to the most appropriate expertise package at the best price.

DIGIVIEW Package

Remote expertise of your scanned slides

Ideal package for answers to specific questions on a case or a diagnosis requiring at most standard immunohistochemistry (antibodies are available in your laboratory).
It is necessary to have a slide scanner and it is the expert who, depending on the type of pathology, will propose this package. Accepted formats are : .svs, .tif, .bif, .vms, .scn, .vmu, .ndpi, .svslide, .mrxs, .jpeg, .png

Our expert will interpret your scanned slides and answer your questions via the secure platform of TERASCOP. If necessary, he will suggest you to carry out additional ancillary tests, which he will interpret once digitized on our platform.

If these tests cannot be performed in your laboratory or if the expert wishes to interpret the case with his own methods for more convenience, he will propose a postal shipment of the sample.

Ancillary Tests Package Range

Mailing of the sample for in-depth techniques

This package range requires the mailing of paraffin blocks and, if possible, microscopic slides in order to carry out in-depth techniques (rare immunohistochemistry, molecular biology techniques).

Depending on the complexity of the case, the expert will propose a package including some of these techniques. :

  • IHC
  • Biomol Cat. 1
  • Biomol Cat. 2
