Pathology laboratory

Anatomic pathology is divided in subspecialties. The main ones being surgical pathology, cytopathology and autopsies.

The studies include breast pathology, cytopathology, including fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNA), gastro-intestinal and liver pathology, hematopathology, molecular pathology and cytogenetics, obstetric and gynecologic pathology, renal pathology, urologic pathology.

The anatomic pathology is a medical specialty that is concerned with the diagnosis of disease based on the gross, microscopic, chemical, immunologic and molecular examination of organs, tissues, and whole bodies (autopsy). Anatomic examinations generally involve both gross (i.e. visible to the eye) and microscopic visual examination of tissues. These procedures employ special staining techniques and immunohistochemistry, a process for locating proteins in tissue cells, in order to visualize specific proteins and other substances around the cells.

Our Pathologists will provide expert clinical advice relating to the interpretation of pathology results to treating practitioners, such as explaining the significance of particular test results or how a disease should be managed based on test results.

Our Pathology laboratory technicians are highly qualified and will support pathology laboratory services by assisting pathologists with gross description and dissection of tissues removed at surgery, maintaining instruments, equipment, and supplies as well as providing a safe, secure, and healthy work environment by following protocols; enforcing hospital policies and procedures and complying with legal regulations.
