BONE AND SOFT TISSUE PATHOLOGY.
The bone and soft tissue pathology unit deal with neoplasm and other pathological conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system and many non-epithelial extraskeletal tissues and soft tissues.
The hematopathology unit provides accurate diagnoses for a variety of hemato-lymphoid neoplastic and nonneoplastic disorders of blood, bone-marrow and lymph nodes.
The immunohistochemistry laboratory performs stains for multiple markers that cover several purposes, including the identification and classification of neoplasms. To do this, we proceed by determining the receptor profile of cancer cells and other signaling abnormalities of said cells that represent targets for therapy
Molecular Pathology is a discipline whose objective is to study and diagnose a disease by examining molecules in biological samples taken from organs, tissues or body fluids. The latest generation of molecular tests are increasingly important for making prognoses and predicting the potential behavior of diseases, thus making it possible to determine the best approach and the therapeutic responses.
The ob/gyn pathology unit is responsible for the diagnoses of the members of the ob/gyn pathology unit have in-depth knowledge of diseases of the female genital tract including vulva, vagina, cervix, uterus, metastastic nodal disease, fallopian tubes and ovaries and emphasize clinical pathologic correlations.
