Histopathology

Main Address

Histopathology (compound of three Greek words: histos "tissue", pathos "disease-suffering", and -logia) refers to the microscopic examination of tissue in order to study the manifestations of disease. Specifically, in clinical medicine, histopathology refers to the examination of a biopsy or surgical specimen by a pathologist, after the specimen has been processed and histological sections have been placed onto glass slides.

The histopathology department receives approximately 12,000 specimens per year (hospital and community). The hospital work involves a mix of biopsy and resection work and includes cancer and non-cancer specimens. The department works as a close team and includes biomedical scientists, medical laboratory assistants, clerical and administrative staff together withthree medical consultants (pathologists) who are general histopathologists with different areas of specialist expertise.
