Help Anyone know of LM and EM images?

Hi guys,

Sorry to bother you guys again. Is there a website that shows all the Light Microscopy, Electron Microscopy(WBC's, Id markers etc), Immunoflourescence, Histo and histopathology images that we need to know for the Step 1?

The only 1 I know of is Webpath, any others that are good for practice and review?

I don't know how much effort you want to put into EM, LM slides.

There is almost too many to memorize and I don't think its worth it. I'm gonna bet the farm that most people feel this way. I think everyone is in the same boat.

This exam is about general knowledge, so knowing thousands of slides, doesn't make sense to know.

I could be wrong though. So if you feel the need to spend valuable time memorizing slides that they won't be using on the exam (cause they will use their own), the go for it.

Study the slides that come up in the question banks, otherwise, skip them

I definitely agree with you on everything that you said, but as I go through my first run and "read" about what EM and LM show for a particular disease, I just wanted to run through a slide so I have a general Idea of what is Normal and what is abnormal, I'm not going to memorize anything, I just want to see them first hand and make mental notes like Chacot Layden crystals (look like Spearheads) and Langerhan's cells (beirbeck granules which look like tennis rackets)....you know what I mean, I just wanna go through specific 1s (as my med school didn't have a histopathology lab)

I do agree that UW or any major q-bank should be enough in those, but if I see them as i'm going through my first read, subsequent times when i see them in Q-banks they'll just be reinforced (just like they can ask the same thing 7 different ways, same with the more reinforcement you have the more things you'll notice when you're in the actual exam)

Ok, I'm gonna clarify.

The slides as in pictures aren't worth knowing. As in, show a picture of a slide and know where it comes from and what it is.

.. the description is a different story. FA reads great for discriptions, the attention will really be on the Kidneys. You should know, thickening of the basement membrane, splitting of basement membrane..

But other than that, don't look at slides and say "where is this from".
