Abstract

As pathologists begin to examine increasing numbers of tumors under the electron microscope and the biochemistry begins to characterize molecular change associated with disease states, electron microscopy will gain wider acceptance in clinical practice. The clinician is admonished not to rely on electron microscopy as a sole diagnostic tool, but to use it as an integral part of the available diagnostic armamentarium.
