The "Make Your Momma Proud" flamingo (or MYMP for short) was created by Dr. Dvanajscak as a way to recognize our doctors when they publish a paper! Anytime you see the MYMP around Arkana, expect a new publication from one or more of our doctors.  Recently, we found the MYMP outside of Dr. Larsen's office. Dr. Larsen, Dr. Bourne, and Dr. Wilson published a paper discussing collapsing glomerulopathy in a patient with coronavirus disease.  Read the paper: Collapsing Glomerulopathy in a Patient With Coronavirus Disease Be on the lookout for the MYMP in the future!

Common Misconceptions in Renal Pathology

renal pathology, renal pathologists, arkana laboratories
Misconception #1: Renal Pathology is Too Hard The truth is that renal pathology can be more complicated than other areas of pathology because it is a clinicopathologic field and to practice it well you need to have a good grasp of certain clinical topics in nephrology. Of course, in pathology residency, you don't get any exposure to nephrology so every pathologist that tries to learn renal pathology is handicapped until they gain sufficient clinical knowledge to utilize in interpreting the patterns they see on biopsy. For our fellows, this process usually takes a few months before they gain confidence. Renal...

Dr. Bonsib’s Retirement

Dr. Bonsib's Retirement, Arkana Visualized, Arkana Laboratories
This past weekend we celebrated the retirement of Dr. Stephen Bonsib. Dr. Bonsib has been with Arkana for the last seven years where he has been committed to diagnostic excellence as well as the education of our fellows, visitors, and his colleagues. He has brought tremendous knowledge of renal and urologic pathology into our practice as well as a deep knowledge of processing techniques in light, immunofluorescence, and electron microscopy. We will still likely see him around from time to time as he plans to make visits to Arkana to participate in our spirited case conferences. While it's natural to...

River the Office Dummy

Last week Gail pulled her dummy from the closet (he goes by River around here) to set him up as someone taking a nap in the common space. Since then, River has entertained a visitor... Caught up on some reading... And started to plan his Halloween costume!  He's really been checking things off of his to-do list this past week.
