How to Use ERG Histology Web Pages

References
Textbooks, Atlases / Websites

In these web-pages you will find extensively hyper-linked notes and images summarizing the basics of tissue organization in the gastrointestinal, reproductive, and endocrine systems.

These notes are NOT intended as a textbook substitute.  If you use this on-line study aid, please consult standard histology textbooks and atlases for additional significant detail.

Content in these web-pages should be similar to that provided in the scheduled Resource Sessions and Laboratories (and should include most of those things you shall be tested on).  Refer to your textbooks and atlases for richer, more detailed information.

Hyperlinks provide quick navigation to definitions or examples.    

Emphasis throughout is on normal histology.  Illustrative examples of pathologic histology are presented occasionally, but you are not expected to learn particular details of pathology at this time.

Some pathological material may be presented in evaluation, and this may differ from that presented in cases.  However, you shall not be expected to identify any specific pathologies.  Rather, with any pathologic specimen you shall be expected simply to recognize normal tissue structures and to distinguish significant departures from normal.

You are invited to e-mail requests and suggestions directly to Prof. King.
This takes just a few seconds:  From any page, click on the e-mail link at bottom, type a quick message (e.g., "I don't understand so-and-so", or "How about more info on [topic]", or "Please add a link from [page] to [topic]" or "There's an error on [page]").  I should respond during the next workday (if not sooner).
