Which classification do you use to grade GCAs?
Please state any particular problems you encounter when grading GCAs.
An appendix containing a GCA is entirely processed for histology. Approximately 80% of the tumour looks like image 1A, while approximately 20% looks like image 1B. Please indicate how you would classify it, using both Tang and WHO if possible.Image 1A (DOWNLOAD LINK)

An online atlas of pathological images of appendiceal and peritoneal pathology has been proposed. To maintain standards, all cases would need to go through a process of quality assurance. On a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is very unlikely and 10 is very likely, please say how likely you would be to use such an online Atlas:
- As a resource for images to illustrate presentations and educational activities
- As an aid to diagnosis when reporting my own cases
- As a way of familiarising myself with the range of appendiceal and peritoneal pathology
- As a repository for images to be used for research into inter-observer variation in reporting
What model of access would you support?

Concerning consistent pathology reporting, how useful do you think the following proposals are likely to be in facilitating consistent reporting between institutions? Please rank the following from 1 most important to 3 least important.
- An “interest group” of pathologists with representatives from major centres who could meet to develop protocols
- Review articles by experts in pathology Journals
- Delphi consensus processes involving large numbers of participants from various specialities
Should the EuroPMP pathologists produce their own recommendations and dataset for reporting these specimens?
If you answered no to the above question, which of the following would you use?
