The Department of Pathology provides comprehensive diagnostic services with an emphasis on accuracy, precision and prompt reporting to our patients thereby helping and guiding the clinicians in proper patient management.
Different Sections of Pathology are:
The samples are tested in the Pathology Department and reports are made online through the hospital network using the Laboratory Information System.
The department is located on the 1st floor of MVRCCRI with easy accessibility to all the clinicians.
Timing of lab
Hematology and Clinical Pathology 24 hours
Surgical Pathology 9 AM to 6 PM Monday to Saturday
We accept samples/slides/paraffin blocks for special stains, IHC & review as part of the referral facility and provide a second opinion on them
All the Labs are most modernized and well-equipped with skilled personnel.
Quality assured test results are generated by proper validation and internal quality control program. This will help the pathologist to give a precise diagnosis. This is again supported by external quality assurance programs (EQAS) on a regular basis for the techniques in general, IHC procedures, and reporting and diagnosis of cases that are submitted to us.
The Department of Pathology is composed of outstanding faculty of 7pathologist, We provide diagnostic services to patients within our hospital system and numerous patients regionally, nationally, and internationally.
Pathologists and technical personnel are not only knowledgeable but highly experienced in their area of expertise and embrace a team approach to quality care, education, and research.
The Histopathology division is excelling itself due to the presence of a state-of-the-art histopathology lab aided with automation and availability of special techniques like immunohistochemistry.
By adopting a system-wise pattern of reporting in the department, the pathologists are fine-tuned to excel in their chosen field. They are getting national training for the same. A very efficient clinicopathological correlation and discussions has been put into place is streamlining the study, and is helping the patient to get the best of treatment.
By using a unique frozen section technique, rapid diagnoses can be made allowing for immediate decisions regarding intraoperative and postoperative patient management. This is provided within a short span of 20 minutes
1. Routine Tests
With a dedicated team of pathologists, diagnosis is reached for material obtained by fine-needle aspiration and exfoliation. The cytocentrifuge, in this department, is an important tool in processing the cerebrospinal fluid in leukemia/lymphoma patients.
Tests were done
The Hematology lab is equipped with 2 fully automated 5 part complete blood count analyzers Beckmen Coulters, analyzing more than 120 samples daily. The coagulation profiles, fibrinogen assay, and factor assays, all done with the Stago machine, along with the hematopathologist's inference helps in solving various bleeding abnormalities. The availability of flow cytometry contributes to the workup of leukemia cases. The various hematological parameters tested in this laboratory include the following -
