Speaker: Han Van Krieken

H. Van Krieken shares a pathologist’s view on RAS testing in colorectal cancer starting from a tissue selection and DNA extraction. He emphasises that a quality control in molecular testing of RAS mutations is essential and underlines the importance of test accuracy for clinical decisions. Furthermore, he discusses how to improve the results from RAS testing.

Discussion Points

  • Pathology evaluation of colorectal cancer samples
  • Step-by-step determination of RAS status
  • Importance of quality control of RAS testing
  • Key message for practice: How, what and when to test?
