Introduction to the Biopsy Page

  • The page name should be "(Disease name) biopsy", with only the first letter of the title capitalized (e.g. Melanoma biopsy).
  • Goal: To provide a description and examples the biopsy findings that may be associated with the disease you are describing.
  • As with all microchapter pages linking to the main page, at the top of the edit box put {{CMG}}, your name template, and the microchapter navigation template you created at the beginning.
  • Remember to create links within Wikidoc by placing [[square brackets]] around key words which you want to link to other pages. Make sure you makes your links as specific as possible. For example if a sentence contained the phrase anterior spinal artery syndrome, the link should be to anterior spinal artery syndrome not anterior or artery or syndrome. For more information on how to create links click here.
  • Remember to follow the same format and capitalization of letters as outlined in the template below.
  • You should include the name of the disease in the first sentence of every subsection.



  • First sentences
[Location] biopsy findings associated with [disease name] include [finding1], [finding2], and [finding3].
There are no biopsy findings associated with [disease name].
On [location] biopsy, [disease name] is characterized by [biopsy finding 1], [biopsy finding 2], and [biopsy finding 3].
