How to Diagnose Tumors and Infectious Organisms?
When people go through any minor or a major surgery their consultant advises histopathology of the removed tissue. Mostly patients don’t know what histopathology is, but they still submit their biopsy sample in a lab for histopathology.
Histopathology is the study of diseased tissue that is obtained through a biopsy by a pathologist. Tissue samples of the tissue are studied under a microscope in order to identify how a disease develops. The tissue sample goes through a special process so it can be analyzed on a slide. Microscopically, final diagnosis is made and reports are being issued to the patient.
But in few cases reports are delayed due to some reasons such as in case of requirement of previous surgery, radiological findings and any other history, whereas some reports are delayed as some special test are advised. For example,
Immunochemistry is the identification of a certain antigen in a histological tissue section or cytological preparation by an antibody specific to that antigen. Immunohistochemistry refers specifically to histological tissue sections.
