Abstract

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is increasingly used in diagnostic centers for the assessment of genomic alterations to select patients for precision oncology. The Italian Society of Anatomic Pathology and Diagnostic Cytopathology (SIAPEC) through the Molecular Pathology and Predictive Medicine Study Group (PMMP) has been following the progressive development of centers that have adopted NGS technology in diagnostics over time. In July 2017, a study network on massive parallel sequencing was activated in Italy and recognized as the NGS SIAPeC National Network by the SIAPeC Scientific Society Board. Since then, activities have been implemented within the network that provide for alignment of laboratories through diagnostic concordance analysis and monitoring of centers adhering to the Network. Recently, considering the growing need for extended genomic analyses, the PMMP distributed a national survey to assess activities related to the use of genomic diagnostics in oncology within the NGS SIAPEC National Network.
