Histopathology was previously known as Morbid Anatomy which may conjure up gruesome images rather like the painting by Dutch artist Pieter van Miereveld ‘The Anatomy Lesson of Dr Willem van der Meer’. alt
So what is it all about?

Histopathology is the branch of pathology which deals with the tissue diagnosis of disease. A tissue diagnosis can be made on the basis of biopsy material taken from the patient on the ward or clinic or in the operating theatre, or from autopsy material.

The laboratory is staffed by a team of Histopathologists (medical doctors who have specialised in histopathology) and Biomedical Scientists who work together to prepare samples for examination and to establish a diagnosis.

The diagnostic information provided by the Histopathologist will enable the clinician to determine the best course of treatment and /or any further surgery that is required for the patient.
