About DXToolkit

Enhance Your Understanding of the Diagnosis and Management of Breast Cancer.

This evidence-based online DXToolkit curriculum provides pre-analytic, analytic and post-analytic educational resources to improve best practices and bridge the gap between multi-disciplinary team members. This website has been designed to educate and inform Pathologists, Lab Professionals, Residents, and multi-disciplinary team members about diagnosis of various cancer types. It is not meant to advise individual patients on the diagnosis of their own unique cases. Patients should always seek the professional advice of their doctors or other qualified health providers with any questions they may have about their medical conditions.

This website is supported by sponsorship from Genentech (founding sponsor) and Merck.

The DXToolkit Steering Committee subject-matter experts have evaluated each of the following articles and approved them based on the following metrics:

  • Usefulness for improving diagnosis of the disease
  • Information relevancy or required knowledge
  • Information based on scholarly research or citations from peer-reviewed publications
