Pathology

Pathology is the study and diagnosis of disease through examination of organs, tissues, bodily fluids, and whole bodies (autopsies). Pathology also encompasses the related scientific study of disease processes, called general pathology. 

Our Pathologists are doctors who diagnose and characterize disease in living patients by examining biopsies or bodily fluids. Pathologists work with our doctors, medical specialty societies, medical laboratory professionals, and health care consumer organizations to set guidelines and standards for medical laboratory testing that help improve a patient's medical care and guide treatment, as well as ensure the quality and safety of domestic and international medical laboratories. 

Our Pathologists also conduct autopsies to investigate causes of death. Autopsy results can aid living patients by revealing a hereditary disease unknown to a patient's family. As managers of medical laboratories (which include chemistry, microbiology, cytology, the blood bank, etc.), our pathologists play an important role in the development of laboratory information systems. 

Pathology touches all of medicine, as diagnosis is the foundation of all patient care. More than 70 percent of all decisions about diagnosis and treatment, hospital admission, and discharge rest on medical test results in addition, our pathologists interpret medical laboratory tests to help prevent illness or monitor a chronic condition.
