Last week at the Target OC open day in Perth, I had the opportunity to be sitting at lunch next to a wonderful lady, a Senior Lecturer, Medical Research Institute, University of Dundee who was horrrified to learn, especially in her area that ascites after removal gets "poured down the drain" they can analyse with it to come up with the optimum treatment for that particular patient - Has anyone else heard of this being done?
It wouldnt do me any good as I have never - touch wood, had this problem but if I ever do I will be asking for it to be sent to Dundee for analysis. Analysis can also be carried out on tissue removed during surgery, the more they get the better their understanding will be. Does everything get incinerated? What happens in your areas?
Looking forward to comments
