Pathology

Pathology is the study of disease. A pathologist, who is a medical doctor, looks at the causes of disease, how disease progresses and how disease affects the body. However, instead of examining the patient physically, a pathologist examines body fluids, and tissue samples from patient to help the primary physician make a diagnosis.

Most people have had some blood and urine tests done during their lifetime. These tests are analyzed by pathologist to help determine the next step in a patient’s treatment plan.

Laboratory tests of almost any nature are performed to accomplish the following:

  • Establish or confirm a diagnosis
  • Rule out diagnoses
  • Help determine a treatment plan
  • Monitor a disease and how it responds to treatment
  • Screen for any underlying disease or risk factors
