SERVICEClinical Testing for Histopathology



The testing utilizes the latest technologies to provide the most accurate results.

Examination of tissue excised for the diagnosis is Histopathology. It remains the final diagnosis in most of the cases and is gold standard method of diagnosis in various disease conditions. When treating physician, excise entire organ or tissue, it is received by the pathology laboratory. The specimens received by the pathology laboratory are then analysed using various techniques.

Principally, there are two types of specimens:

  1. Large specimen which include whole or part of an organ removed during treatment. e. g. Gall bladder during cholecystectomy
  2. Smaller bits of tissue which is removed as biopsies, usually for diagnosis purpose. Biopsies include excision biopsies, in which tissue is removed with a scalpel (e.g. a skin excision for a suspicious mole) or a core biopsy, in which a needle is inserted into a suspicious mass to remove a slither or core of tissue that can be examined under the microscope (e.g. to investigate a breast lump).

Specimens received by the pathology laboratory require initial tissue preparation, then are treated and analysed using techniques appropriate to the type of tissue and the investigation required. It is used to diagnose, cancerous and non-tumorous conditions.

LIST OF ALLFrequently Asked Questions

What is the importance of histopathology?

Histopathology enables professionals to look for changes in cells that explain the actual cause of the patient’s illness. Pathologists are able to reach a diagnosis by examining a small piece of tissue from various organs. Histopathology is vital as it broadens and progresses treatments options.

How is histopathology test done?

The tissue that is studied comes from a biopsy or surgical procedure whereby a sample of the suspect tissue is selected and sent to the laboratory. It is then processed and cut into very thin layers (called sections), stained, and examined under microscopes to characterize the details of the cells in the tissue.

What happens when a biopsy comes back positive?

Generally, after a patient receives positive melanoma results, his or her doctors will need to proceed with staging the malignancy— which essentially means determining the extent of cancer—and developing a treatment plan based on how far cancer has progressed.
